What's on in 2017 at IWM
IWM was established while the First World War was still being fought and will mark its centenary in 2017. To commemorate 100 years of its study of modern war, IWM will present a programme of exhibitions and events across its five branches (IWM London, IWM North, IWM Duxford, HMS Belfast and Churchill War Rooms) with further details to be announced in early 2017.
The programme includes responses to conflict and the personal stories of those whose lives have been affected by war over the last century. Highlights for 2017 include People Power: Fighting for Peace at IWM London, the first major UK exhibition exploring the evolution of anti-war protest from the First World War to the present day. IWM London will also host a series of free exhibitions reflecting upon the ongoing conflict in Syria. In autumn 2017, IWM London will stage Age of Terror: Art Since 9/11, the first major survey exhibition to explore how contemporary artists have responded to war and conflict since 9/11.
The first major UK retrospective in more than sixty years of work by twentieth century British artist Wyndham Lewis will be held at IWM North, marking one hundred years since Lewis was first commissioned as an official war artist in 1917.
IWM Duxford’s Air Shows will take place in May, July and September 2017.
