Living with War: Artists on War and Conflict

Date: 27 September 2013 – 9 March 2014
Space: Gallery 1

Living with War: Artists on War and Conflict included film, installation, painting, printmaking and photography from Glasgow Museums’ modern and contemporary art collections. It explores how artists from around the world have used their work to highlight the effects of war and conflicts on societies and cultures.

Living with War: Artists on War and Conflict covered 200 years of artists’ responses to human-made atrocity, from Goya’s ‘The Disasters of War’ etchings (1810–20) to one of Jenny Holzer’s LED screens. Through a wide range of works taken from Glasgow Museums’ collection, Living with War not only provides perspective on how artists attempt to make an impact by exploring issues such as sectarianism, famine and torture, but it also showcases how effective such attempts at artistic political action can be.
