Conflict, Time, Photography

Poignant exhibition focusing on the aftermath and passage of time over 150 years of conflict and warfare around the world, through photographs and paintings.

Central to the exhibition is the ordering of the art works according to the length of time that passed since their creation - from seconds and days to weeks and even decades later. In this way, images created in Vietnam 25 years after the fall of Saigon are displayed alongside those made in Nagasaki 25 years after the atomic bomb.

Organisers say the exhibition is designed to allow the viewer to make connections between how the legacy of war is captured in retrospect by artists and photographers. Many of the works reveal the emotional and physical affects of war, trauma and torture, as well as the scarred landscapes left behind.

Highlights of the show include Don McCullin’s Shell-shocked US Marine from 1968, Jerzy Lewczynski’s 1960 photographs of the Wolf’s Lair/Adolf Hitler’s War Headquarters, and Kikuji Kawada’s epic project The Map made in Hiroshima in the 1960s.

Sun-Thurs 10.00-18.00. Fri-Sat 10.00-22.00.
