Artworks and artifacts
The International Free Expression Project commissions artworks, photographs, performances and other works of creative expression. It also collects artifacts related to free expression. To date, most of the artworks produced and artifacts collected have been inspired by the massive newspaper presses that used to rise 40 feet high in the pressroom of the former Pittsburgh Post-Gazette building in the U.S. city of Pittsburgh. IFEP plans to create in the pressroom a Marketplace of Ideas and International Center for Free Expression. Below are a few samples of works created for IFEP so far...
