Instructions For Peace is a touring public art and gallery exhibition of interactive multimedia art installations containing people’s instructions for peace in the twenty-first century. The project was conceived and curated by Minneapolis-based new media arts curator Marlina Gonzalez. The exhibition was first installed at Togonon Gallery in San Francisco, as a parallel exhibition to the 2009 01SJ Bienniale in San Jose, California. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery presents an expanded version of Instructions For Peace. This exhibition integrates selections from the San Francisco exhibition with new or commissioned works by Minnesota-based artists. The Department of Art has an ongoing partnership with the FAIR School, a K12 arts magnet school with branches in Crystal and downtown Minneapolis. Instructions For Peace offers a unique opportunity to explore the relationships of art, academics, and peace as a lifetime pursuit that spans generations.

Katherine E. Nash Gallery
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. We believe the visual arts have the capacity to interpret, critique and expand on all of human experience. Our engagement with the visual arts helps us to discover who we are and understand our relationships to each other and society. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery will be a center of discourse on the practice of visual art and its relationship to culture and community — a place where we examine our assumptions about the past and suggest possibilities for the future. http://nash.umn.edu/
