The Cartoons at Large Exhibition [fr]
The Cartoons at Large exhibition comprises 12 panels of press illustrations by 50 artists from around the world. Each panel is devoted to a specific theme concerning freedom of expression, such as censorship, corruption, women’s rights, sports, racism, etc. The drawings, made by artists of 45 different nationalities, have all been published in their respective countries.
South Africa is represented by its own Zapiro. While echoing the attacks against Charlie Hebdo in January 2015, this exhibition is broadening the perspective by illustrating the manner in which freedom of expression today comes into play on all continents. The aim of Cartoons at large is to stir up a debate on freedom of expression.
The exhibition will be opened on Wednesday 02 March at 18:30 by Adv. Gilbert Marcus.
