“Nope to Hope” an exhibition in the Brixton Rec of works withdrawn by 40 artists from the Design Museum in protest at their decision to host an event for a major global arms company.  The exhibition is part of the Brixton Design Trail.

The artists came together as the #NopeToArms Collective and released a statement that said: “By being on your walls in the context of the Leonardo event, our work takes on a new meaning: of complicity in the arms trade. This is completely unacceptable to us… 

Their work now appears alongside a range of other political, activist and grassroots art covering a mix of international and local campaigns. Much of the art in this exhibition has been used on the frontlines of social justice struggles around the world to disrupt, resist, satirise and mobilise.

The free exhibition – part of the London Design Festival – runs from 15-23 September in the Brixton Recreation Centre, 27 Brixton Station Road, SW9 8QQ

For more information about the exhibition, the #NopeToArms collective and publicity materials, see nopetoarms.org or email nopetoarms@gmail.com

A full list of the artists that withdrew their work from the Design Museum, and a statement explaining their decision, can be found here.

The artists’ second letter to the Design Museum, quoted above, can be found here.
