This major new exhibition features artists’ responses to the Troubles in Northern Ireland. It offers avenues for exploring the way in which the Troubles have been viewed by artists and for reflecting on the manifestations and impact of violence and division in our society. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, photographs, videos and sculpture. It explores a broad range of themes including violence and destruction, suffering and loss traditions and life in the midst of turmoil.
Art of the Troubles has been developed in partnership with the Ulster Museum and includes many works from the collections of National Museums Northern Ireland including the recently gifted Arts Council of Northern Ireland Collection. Also incorporated are loans from the Imperial War Museum, London and the Irish Museum of Modern Art as well as works from private collections and the artists themselves.
