Art and War: from the Cold War to Afghanistan
Sat 24 June 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
War artists have depicted the work of nurses in conflict zones since at least the Crimean War. In this talk on Armed Forces Day, we explore very different ways of depicting war through art. View some photographs of recent conflicts and find out about the challenges of being an artist in a war zone. Speaker Peter Kennard will also consider the role his art has played in raising awareness of the threat of nuclear war.
