“Imagine: Reflections on Peace” at USIP

"Imagine: Reflections on Peace" installed at the United States Institute of Peace, Washington DC.

On June 2, the United States Institute of Peace and our partner, The VII Foundation, will open “Imagine: Reflections on Peace,” a multimedia exhibit that explores the themes and challenges of peacebuilding through an immersive look at societies that suffered — and survived — violent conflict. Using historical photos, texts, video profiles, and interactive opportunities, the “Imagine” exhibition brings visitors face-to-face with the realities of violent conflict and asks the question: “Why is it so difficult to make a good peace when it is so easy to imagine?”

Conceived and designed by The VII Foundation, this in-person experience located at the United States Institute of Peace’s Washington, D.C. headquarters includes the work of VII Photo Agency photographers: Alexandra Boulat, Eric Bouvet, Ziyah Gafic, Ron Haviv, Gary Knight, Christopher Morris, Seamus Murphy, Maciek Nabrdalik, Franco Pagetti, Espen Rasmussen, Daniel Schwartz, and Nichole Sobecki.

This exhibit also gives visitors a chance to engage with the Institute’s on-the-ground peacebuilding work — as well as learn about practical actions they themselves can take to make the world more peaceful.

The exhibit will run from June 2 through August 1 and will be open to the public on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Tickets must be reserved in advance here.
