The John Lennon Wall - Closing Event

CLOSING EXHIBITION EVENT: on Thursday, August 27, 7PM we will unveil the final wall and premiere a digital screening of our process leading up to the “birth” of the wall. the evening will also include a live performance and action painting.


The wall was a well-known symbol of expression of freedom under the communist regime. In 1980 after John Lennon's death, Czechs began expressing their grievances by painting on it. Today everyone is welcomed to come and paint over the hundreds of layers that have been painted and written on.

EXHIBITION
This creative exhibition is open through August 27.
The process in which the "birth of the wall" will come to life is going to be captured through photos and animated video and presented at the closing ceremony. Everyone is welcomed to leave their imprint as a memory. With this project we hope to incorporate the “spirit of the New York City” with the spirit of this great building and the symbolism behind this powerful wall in Prague.
