Until December 30th 2016, the Society of Ilustrators in New York hosts an exclusive exhibition to celebrate Cartooning For Peace’s anniversary.
Cartoonists from all over the world, also members of CFP network, draw about 10 years of collective reflexion on freedom of speech. 10 years of providing support to cartoonists all around the world, 10 years of fighting for freedom of speech, and 10 years of collective endeavor which we are proudly celebrating with this exhibition.
On display in the second floor gallery.
Special thanks to editorial cartoonist Liza Donnelly (New York) for curating this exhibition, with the support of Isis Ascobereta, editorial project manager (Paris).
A lecture and panel discussion to celebrate the exhibit take place on December 8th, from 6.30 to 8.30pm featuring Ann Telnaes, Nicolas Vadot, Patrick Chappatte, Jeff Danziger, Liza Donnelly, and moderated by Mark Gore, the Director of CFP.
In 2006, following the Danish Cartoon controversy, an organization was founded called Cartooning For Peace. Its members seek to increase dialogue through cartoons about global issues, and foster communication among cartoonists and the public about the art form and its responsibilities. Since then, the world has witnessed cartoons at the center of even more death and destruction. What is the role of the editorial cartoonist, and is freedom of expression under attack? How do cartoons cross borders and what exactly is their power?
Join us for celebration of the tenth anniversary of Cartooning for Peace with a discussion of these timely issues.
