Art Against War: Peter Kennard and the CND Movement

Saturday 9 June 2018 - Sunday 7 October 2018

Art Against War marks the 60th anniversary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament with a showcase of work by an artist who created some of the movement’s most potent images.

CND was formed in February 1958 in response to the detonation of Britain’s first hydrogen bomb and the Government’s agreement to house American nuclear weapons on British soil. Throughout the 1970s and 80s Peter Kennard’s hugely powerful photomontages ensured that the movement, and the striking imagery that came to represent it, were etched onto the public consciousness. 

Kennard has gone on to become one of Britain’s leading political artists, creating work which has come to define modern protest. His iconic, haunting images have appeared in publications such as New Scientist, The Guardian, New Statesmen and many more.
