The Town Hall will host Dessins en Liberté, which when translated means Freedom Drawings, for the rest of the month following a launch at 5.30 pm.
The exhibition comprises 12 panels containing artwork that addresses a range of topics – such as racism, freedom, equality and corruption – that have featured in different publications.
It has been co-ordinated by Alliance Française de Jersey, a non-profit group that aims to encourage Islanders to learn French and to learn about France’s culture, in partnership with the Institut Française, a group that carries out similar work around the globe, and staff at the Town Hall.
It comes one year after gunmen stormed the offices of satirical news magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, where they killed 11 people and injured 11 others in the building.
The exhibition runs until 30 January.
