Children in Conflict at Wolverhampton Art Gallery

About

This ground breaking exhibition draws together work by internationally renowned contemporary artists, looking at the ways in which children can become caught up in conflicts created by the adult world. As part of this exhibition, in association with Christian Aid, renowned war artist John Keane has produced a new series of large scale paintings, responding to issues facing millions of young people in war-torn Angola, southern Africa. Keane's touching and symbolic paintings have captured the beauty and hope of humanity against the conflict scarred backdrop of Angola.
The exhibition also includes powerful works responding to the various effects of modern conflicts on children from across the globe, and from Vietnam, to the present day.
Works include a sculptural installation by Laura Ford, photography from Simon Norfolk and Guy Tillim, a photographic projection by Anthony Haughey, photomontage works by Martha Rosler, a Monika Oeshler video piece and ceramics by Midlands-based artist Emma Summers.
