In Los Angeles, a showcase of never-before-seen photographs by legendary photographer Jim Marshall documents signs of peace in America from 1961 to 1969. The exhibition follows the September 2017 book release of these photographs in Peace (Reel Art Press), featuring a foreword by Shepard Fairey, who will also exhibit two original works inspired by the book. In conjunction with the exhibition, Subliminal Projects invited emerging artists to submit works inspired by the peace symbol and Marshall’s photographs on Instagram.

“Marshall’s photographs do not merely capture a momentous era in our collective history: they demonstrate what needs to be done, and what can be done, to ensure freedom for ourselves and those who follow us. As the sticker on the guitar case says: ‘Peace is the only shelter.” – Peter Doggett
