Video Art Network Lagos presents films4peace

VENUE: The Amphitheatre, Freedom Park, Lagos Island.

DATE: 28th December 2012

TIME: 7 - 10pm

films4peace, an annual short film commission by PUMA.Peace, curated by Mark Coetzee, features 21 of today’s most innovative contemporary artists visually interpreting the subject of peace. These art films were released at cultural venues globally and online on World Peace Day on 21 September 2012. Launched through the dedicated website, the initiative encourages the films to be screened and shared across the world, through social networking websites, blogs and media channels.

“Artists confront us with the challenges of our time,” said Mark Coetzee, films4peace curator. “films4peace are both disturbing and inspiring, responsive to the reality of our time but they also ask us to be responsible for our actions. PUMA.Peace wishes to contribute to making the world a better place. A world that is safer, more peaceful and more creative. We are honoured that so many amazing and high profile museums, galleries and online partners have joined us in this important initiative.”
