Towards the ‘Big Picture’: William Kelly

Towards the ‘Big Picture’: William Kelly

This exhibition highlights a range of William Kelly’s works on issues of human rights.

This exhibition highlights a range of Kelly’s works on issues of human rights, social justice, violence against women and children, and peace. It ranges from Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which relates to work exhibited in the 1973 Watergate exhibition, through to The Prison of History or the Poetry of Possibilities… the immediate precursor to his monumental work that features in the film Can Art Stop a Bullet? William Kelly’s Big Picture.

From intimate to wall-sized works, this exhibition reflects artist and activist Kelly’s commitment to drawing and his concerns over the past four decades.
