THE ARTIST - BRADLEY MCCALLUM


McCallum is a conceptual artist with 20 years of experience making work around difficult issues such
as race-relations, urban violence, and civil disobedience. His practice is built around interpersonal relationships with an insistence on collaboration and dialogue. Based in the USA, he embarked on Weights
and Measures in 2013 through a residency with the Coalition for the International Criminal Court and
desire to understand in an international context the concerns he was dealing with at home. By opening
up his practice to justice communities he hopes to deepen the dialogue around the meaning and role
of international justice in society today.

THE EXHIBITION - WEIGHTS AND MEASURES: PORTRAITS OF JUSTICE


This public art project enters the arena of international law and human rights work as a proposition:
Can portraiture of defendants, justice practitioners, and audio-testimonials from source communities,
effectively open a space to discuss the underling issues central to genocide and human rights abuses,
such as, masculinity, power and accountability? In 2017 the body of artwork will travel to South Africa,
Kenya, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Netherlands, and be accompanied
by conferences on art and justice, as well as public outreach that will over time change the texture
and tone of the artwork to create a collective social portrait of international justice. It can be viewed
in The Hague beginning on November 16 at Project 2.0/Gallery at Noordeinde 57 (en.project20.nl).
