Join us for the opening of the exhibition on Thursday 31 July, 5pm - 7pm.

How does conflict abroad relate to culture and society at home? What does it mean to oppose warmongering? What would a genuine and democratic peace look like? Co-curated by Owen Logan and Kirsten Lloyd, this exhibition brings together a rich array of artworks, photobooks and archival materials which use realist strategies to offer alternative perspectives on warfare and the civil peace.

The King's Peace | Realism and War is part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2014 and GENERATION: a major, nation-wide exhibition programme showcasing some of the best and most significant artists to have emerged from Scotland over the last 25 years. Stills' contribution to the GENERATION programme centres on the work of Owen Logan. As well as presenting his photo-essay Masquerade for the first time in Scotland, Logan has been invited to expand upon its themes by co-curating The King's Peace exhibition.
