Lest we forget?
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 the armistice signed between the Allies of the First World War and Germany began. The First World War was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, resulting in unprecedented fatalities. Lest We Forget? is part of Making a New World, a series of exhibitions s at IWM London and IWM North which explore the effects of The Great War on our society.
Exhibits in this powerful and thought provoking show include the original Joey puppet from the critically acclaimed War Horse, renowned paintings by artists including John Singer Sargent and a photograph of The Unknown Soldier.
The exhibition showcases a range of original audio and visual recordings alongside artefacts and artistic works which together create ‘a powerful tribute to the art of remembrance' (The Daily Telegraph) and explore how this devastating war has shaped our society today. Fusion are immensely proud to have been involved in this very special exhibition.
