PeaceWorks Exhibition

What does peace look like? Thirty-eight photographers from 11 countries hope to answer this question with their exhibition PeaceWorks from August 24th through 31st at Yokohama ZAIM (2F, 3F, and 4F, 12:00-19:00. 5 minute walk from Yokohama Kannai Station, just behind Yokohama Stadium).

The PeaceWorks exhibition is divided into two themes.

Images by a Kanto-based group come under “My Inner Peace” and address the problem of finding personal peace. Images by the Kansai International Photographers Association (KIPA) are a considered response to mainstream media “war photography” and seek to go beyond simple stereotypes in “Visualizing the Ideal”. This Kansai group has held several PeaceWorks exhibitions in Kyoto, including shows at Kyoto Sangyo University and Kyoto University of Foreign Studies.

At the August exhibition in Yokohama, workshops for children and young people will be held every day from 13:00-

The opening party will be held Sunday, August 24th, 16:00-18:00.

A panel discussion with participating artists is set for Saturday, August 30th, 16:30-18:00. Artists will be in attendance all week long.
