1 in 3: What Does it Take for You to Be Outraged?
January 21–May 8, 2016
World Bank Art Program
The title of the contemporary art exhibition 1 in 3 from the World Bank Art Program derives from a chilling statistic. More than one in three women around the world are beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused during their lifetimes. The exhibition will display photographs, paintings, sculpture, and video created by international, emerging contemporary artists that directly confront gender-based violence (GBV). This is art that makes a difference by raising awareness about a serious global issue with local effects.
