BILL WEEGE: Peace is Patriotic
Curated by Robert Epp

MARCH 15 - 30, 2007

Gallery One One One is excited to present Peace is Patriotic, a portfolio of 25 anti-war prints from 1967, by American artist Bill Weege (weeg-he). Born in Wisconsin in 1935, Weege studied printmaking and sculpture at the University of Wisconsin at Madison during the Vietnam War era, and became one of the sixties most politically active artists. Using pop culture images and text, his inflammatory prints condemn American military aggression, government war propaganda, and the obscenity of modern warfare. His sophisticated prints combine photomontage and collage techniques with serigraphy and offset lithography printing. Widely reproduced as protest posters for student demonstrations in the 1960s, Weege's Peace is Patriotic fueled the peace movement in the United States that sought to end American involvement in the Vietnam War. Selected from the collection of Gallery One One One, Peace is Patriotic marks the fourth year anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq that began March 20, 2003.
