World Bank Art Program Exhibition: One In Three – What Does It take for You to Be Outraged?

Opening: July 28, 2016
Venue: Ecology Gallery, National Museum
Time: 5 pm

One In Three: What Does It Take for You to Be Outraged? From the World Bank Art Program
The One In Three exhibition is a global exhibition that includes artworks from artists from every region of the world. The title of the exhibition derives from statistics that a third of women in the world will experience gender-based violence (GBV) in their lifetimes. Through works of art and statistical data collected from all regions of the world, the exhibition will raise awareness about universality of gender-based violence, and will encourage a dialogue in the local community about both preventing GBV and the rehabilitation from the trauma of it.

The exhibition will display photographs, paintings and sculpture created by emerging, international contemporary artists that directly confront the issue of GBV. This is art that makes a difference by raising awareness about a global social problem with local effects.
