Exhibition: John Keane - If you knew me. If you knew yourself. You would not kill me.
Fri 7 Jun - Fri 21 JunFree Event
2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, when approximately 800,000 people were slaughtered, mostly by hand, over 100 days.
The Aldeburgh Festival presents paintings made by John Keane after his visit to the country in 2015. These powerful paintings, some using fabric and clothing, suggest the haunting absence of the human figure. The title comes from a banner draped over the altar of a church where a massacre had taken place.
In collaboration with Flowers Gallery.
Around the Snape Maltings site (from 7 June), with additional works at the Peter Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh.
Peter Pears Gallery is open Saturday 8 – Sunday 23 June, 10am – 5pm daily.
