Imperial War Museum London presents the UK’s first major exhibition of artists’ responses to war and conflict since the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001 - Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11.

About

See the UK’s first major exhibition of artists’ responses to war and conflict since the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001 at Imperial War Museum London. Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11 will feature more than 40 British and international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Grayson Perry, Gerhard Richter, Jenny Holzer, Mona Hatoum, Alfredo Jaar, Coco Fusco and Jake & Dinos Chapman.

The complex issues surrounding the global response to 9/11, the nature of modern warfare and the continuing state of emergency in which we find ourselves have become compelling subject matter for contemporary artists.

Artists’ unique ways of communicating through their art provide different levels of understanding. The stories they tell, whether first or second-hand, come from alternative viewpoints not always reflected in the mainstream media, often challenge our perceptions.

Through 50 works of art including film, sculpture, painting, installations, photography and prints, many of which will be exhibited publically in the UK for the first time, this exhibition highlights the crucial role of artists in representing contemporary conflict.
