Peter Kennard:
Unofficial War Artist

Until 30 May 2016
IWM London, UK

Peter Kennard: Unofficial War Artist examines the art and practice of Britain’s most important political artist.

The exhibition is the first major retrospective of Kennard's work, charting a 50-year career and featuring over 200 artworks, including a new art installation ‘Boardroom’ created especially for the exhibition.

Kennard (b. London, 1949) abandoned painting during the late 60s, seeking new forms of expression to bring art and politics together. His desire to make art that spoke to all led him to the medium of photomontage for its ability to show the "unrevealed truth" behind the image.

Kennard’s images have become synonymous with political activism in recent times and have inspired many of today’s politically-aware artists, from Mark Wallinger to Banksy.
