International Day Against Nuclear Tests 2015

Share/Bookmark

The International Day against Nuclear Tests is observed on August 29. It was established on December 2, 2009 at the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly by the resolution 64/35. Since nuclear weapons testing began in the mid-twentieth century, with the first test on 16 July 1945, nearly 2,000 have taken place. The International Day Against Nuclear Tests aims to raise public awareness about the effects of global nuclear weapon tests, and advocates the banning of nuclear tests as a step to achieving a safer world. To mark this year’s International Day Against Nuclear Tests, an exhibition of art related to nuclear testing and nuclear weapons by artists from Austria, China, Kazakhstan, and the United States was on display at the Vienna International Centre.

Fine Art Exhibit by Adam Parker Smith

Share/Bookmark

Adam Parker Smith’s first solo exhibition in New York City. It was inspired by the execution scene in Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls. The heads are impaled on stakes or lying on the ground which is strewn with roses. As guilt, fascination and loyalty encroach, flawless heroines confront heart ache, fools distinguish beauty from the grotesque and the wretched mourn the loss of irreproachable purity.
