Art has often provided the most profound and critical responses to conflict. The Troubles in Northern Ireland are no exception.

National Museums NI has selected a range of challenging and evocative artworks from its collection to on tour, starting at Nerve Visual, Derry~Londonderry, from January 2019.

Featuring work by artists such as Joseph McWilliams, Locky Morris, Jack Pakenham and Rita Duffy, Troubles Art will explore themes of conflict and violence, suffering and loss, and the meaning and power of symbols.

After launching at Nerve Visual, the exhibition will tour to a further four locations across Northern Ireland and border counties.

Accompanying the exhibition at each location will be a programme of community engagement opportunities and events.
