25th Anniversary of the Gulf War: Jan 17-Feb28 1991-2016

This week marks the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War (sadly, we have to specify which one-the Desert Storm one, but the part where we started bombing to impel the retreat of Iraqi troops from Kuwait).  I am recapping some of my print, paint, performance, installation, etc. that directly addresses or was inspired by these events, and the years of intertwined history between the United States and Iraq since.   Check consciousv@twitter,, or Kevin Valentine on Facebook for more posts.——-

Widows#5 Performance/Installation was one of my best media pieces of the series. Projection of up to five videos of me completing an earlier performance was layered on top of a live performance of Widowsweave on a chalkboard that I built on which 3 million intersections of line are drawn.

Next week ,February 28th, 2015, is the 5th anniversary of the Widows: Lines in the Sand – 43 days performance/endurance/community art commemorating Iraqi Widows, and the 24th anniversary of the end of the Gulf War.  Artistactivist Kevin Valentine (consciousv) wants you all to post one picture or video in the upcoming year to say “enough” – enough war, enough heartbreak, enough violence.  Draw your  Line in the Sand.  Post a picture or video of your line – whether it is literally in the sand, in your art, across your desk, or the dance floor.  Starting February 28th, let’s see if we can get 3 million unique participants worldwide to say enough is enough. #linesinthesand #consciousv #artistactivist #birddenoftruth #kevinvalentine
