KRM Cherif et Geza, International artists (French and German) are exhibiting from May to October 2017 alongside original works by JM Basquait, Kieth Haring and Andy Warhol in the Museum de Montelimar, France.

Paul Doran (Belfast) has also exhibited International in Ivory Coast/ Liverpool Art Fair/ Titanic Belfast.

The NO WALLS project is an international contemporary visual arts exhibition and live performances in interaction with the Belfast public. The artists chose Belfast to launch its first exhibition for symbolic reasons and to recognise the progress made for peace in Northern Ireland. At the launch and Public event old French posters placed on the floor become a communicative vehicle as visitors are invited to write messages and expressions on them. These will be placarded by the artists at Northumberland St Belfast interface gates where Paul Doran and Mark Ervine have collaborated with a mural as part of No Walls project, where the public can add comments and art.

Belfast was chosen by the artists for symbolic reasons and to recognise the progress made for peace in Northern Ireland. The objectives are to promote peace, human rights, personal introspection and communication through art. NO WALLS empowers ordinary people to express their views. NO WALLS does not advocate the premature ‘bringing down of walls’ where people’s safety could be compromised. It is aspirational and an expression of hope.
