Art Against War, exhibition in England


This 19 June 2018 video from England says about itself:

Art Against War: Peter Kennard

Peter Kennard has created some of the most potent anti-war images of the past 50 years. Throughout the 1970s and 80s Kennard’s hugely powerful photomontages ensured that the CND movement, and the striking imagery that came to represent it, were etched onto the public consciousness. He has gone on to become one of Britain’s leading political artists, creating work which has come to define modern protest.

His iconic, haunting images have appeared in publications such as New Scientist, The Guardian, New Statesman and many more. Art Against War: Peter Kennard and the CND Movement is on display at the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield until 7 October 2018. Entry to the exhibition is free.

From the Millennium Gallery, Sheffield:

Art Against War marks the 60th anniversary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament with a showcase of work by an artist who created some of the movement’s most potent images.

CND was formed in February 1958 in response to the detonation of Britain’s first hydrogen bomb and the Government’s agreement to house American nuclear weapons on British soil.
