Cartoons in Conflict

6 West 26th Street, Flatiron District NY



Description

No Longer Empty partnered  with The Parents Circle – Families Forum (PCFF) for Cartoons in Conflict: Editorial Cartoonists Explore Palestinian-Israeli Conflict. The exhibition featured the works of forty renowned American and International cartoonists who offer their singular perspective on the Palestinian-Israeli situation
 
Conflict, reconciliation, and peace are illustrated through the works of Nobel laureate Pat Oliphant, Pulitzer Prize winner Jim Morin, syndicated political cartoonist Jeff Danziger, and The New Yorker's Liza Donnelly, as well as international artists No Rio of Japan, Plantu of France, El-Roto of Spain, and Cathy Wilcox of Australia among others.  

Meant to promote peace, tolerance and understanding, this exhibition portrays complicated and challenging ideas with just a few penstrokes. As Robi Damelin, spokesperson of PCFF notes “Their art illustrates the destructive absurdity of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and, more importantly, serves as a catalyst for hope by imagining a path to reconciliation and peace.
