A Flawed Peace? Special Saturday Opening
We have a special Saturday opening with opportunity to view current exhibition A Flawed Peace? an exhibition exploring post-war peace marking the First World War Centenary. The 18th of January is 100 years since the opening of the Versailles conference.
Saturday 19th January- 11am till 3pm.
Free entry (Donations welcome).
The exhibition focusses on both heritage of the war and heritage of the peace and features a 1919 copy of the Treaty of Versailles, the peace treaty signed after the war. The 1919 copy of the Treaty of Versailles belonged to Bradford politician Meredith Farrah Titterington and has remained in Bradford throughout it’s near one-hundred-year history.
A Flawed Peace? examines the question of whether the post-war peace after the First World War was flawed and will explore the kind of peace that was agreed. It looks at perspectives from different nations, peace groups, and individuals.
The exhibition also features original printing plates from the Women’s International Congress in Zurich which was held at the same time as the Peace Treaty of Versailles and hosted over 200 women from 17 nations. At this conference, the International Congress of Women regrouped to form a new organization who opposed the Treaty of Versailles named the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. Research into WILPF has been carried out by Impressions Gallery’s Young Artist Collective New Focus and forms part of the exhibition along with new prints made from the plates.
A Flawed Peace? is supported by a National Lottery grant awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund’s First World War then and now programme and made possible by National Lottery players.
Entrance to the museum is free, donations are welcome.
