Auction 28th January at Bonhams
M16: The Artwork
Jake Chapman, the ICA and Bonhams committed to M16

The Peace One Day 2012 art project was an incredible success, raising almost £450,000 and incredible levels of awareness for Peace One Day’s work in 2013. With the next art project we hope to build on this success for future Peace Days.

Awareness of Peace Day creates action, and that action saves lives – a child will not be bullied, a woman will not be hit, a gun will not be fired. The creative community has a key role to play and a voice that can be heard, using their influence to help increase awareness and raise funds.

For 2014, curated again by leading contemporary artist Jake Chapman, we asked asking artists to use decommissioned M16 assault rifles to produce artwork, thereby continuing the story of taking objects of war and using them in support of peace.

The Exhibition took place at the Institute of Contemporary Arts during Frieze week from Monday 13th October to Friday 19th October 2014 with an auction at Bonham's on 28th January 2015.
