See Rivelino's Nuestros Silencios

Yesterday, a new art exhibit was opened in Victoria Tower Gardens, just south of the Houses of Parliament, in Westminster. Designed by Mexican artist Rivelino, Nuestros Silencios consists of a circle of ten bronze five metre-tall sculptures, which represent the need for freedom of expression.


The sculptures were created in celebration of the bicentenary of Mexico’s independence and the centennial of the Mexican Revolution, and have already been shown in Lisbon, Madrid, Brussels and Berlin and have now arrived in London for about a month.

The sculptures will be in the Gardens until 16th February, when they move to Paris. For more information, see here, or here

  1. How fitting that they are shown with the Palace of Westmenster in the background. It reminds us how lucky we are to have freedom of expression.
