As I sat in the gallery in Brighton, UK in 2017, in the midst of the Guernica Remakings exhibition I knew then I wanted to tour the exhibition.
Two years in the making the exhibition went on tour in 2019. The tour built upon connections that had come about through the first exhibition and was a great opportunity to develop the collaborative nature of the project.
Working with local and international artists, collectives, libraries, peace projects and charities, I aimed to facilitate an environment to cultivate different artistic ways of working with a focus on art as an empowering force.
We documented the tour and below is the film we made, come meet everyone involved:
