A ONE-DAY ONLY exhibition from 2pm
THURSDAY 25th of February 2016 at Gillett Square in Dalston, London
Ladies and Gentlemen,
We’re pleased to announce a rather rare and special occasion.
Many of you already know that we were unable to display MIMSY’s six artworks at the PFF Festival 2015 due to significant pressure from both the police and the gallery.
We are therefore extremely glad to be able to present to you all of the censored artworks.
We very much hope that you will join us in order to raise a glass to freedom. As Douglas Murray has observed in the Spectator; “…The exhibition has a simple mission – which is to display the work of artists who are thinking seriously about freedom,
what it means and how you lose it…but that is where Britain is now. The police can effectively censor a show if they cite the risk of ‘community tensions’ or ‘inflammatory content’. And so the police get to decide what you and I and everyone else should be able to see.“ The purpose of this exhibition will therefore be to consider the nature of freedom, how easily it can be lost and how hard it is to win it back.
Please not that this will be a ONE-DAY ONLY exhibition this Thursday 25/02/2016 from 2pm at Gillett Square in Dalston N16 8JN
Passion for Freedom (PFF) is a non-governmental, voluntary-based organization that promotes human rights and freedom of expression through art. PFF was started in London in 2007 by a small group of friends, mainly women, and is today supported by a huge international network of artists, activists, journalists and professionals. Each year we ask contributing artists, film producers, writers and journalists 3 pivotal questions:
1. What is freedom?
2. How easy is it to lose?
3. How hard is it to get it back?
The festival was recognized by Madonna and highlighted in her Freedom Calendar 2014. PFF worked with the BBC on its Freedom Year Program last year, and it continues to cooperate with Royal Holloway University on the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. Passion for Freedom stands for freedom. PFF seeks to involve people in education projects and breaks political correctness in media.
