Graphic Witness brings together work made in the 20th century by Eugenio Dittborn, George Grosz, Leon Golub, Beatriz Gonzalez and Nancy Spero and artworks made today by artists working across the globe.
The exhibition demonstrates the power of drawing to challenge and question, its capacity to record and reflect protest, and to produce images that bear witness to social injustice and even the horrors of war. The drawings move beyond documentation of man's inhumanity to man, and become active agents in understanding how political ideals are corrupted, and a reminder not to stand by, but to act.
