Echoes Across the Century

Echoes Across the Century
Free exhibition | 31 March - 16 July

Guildhall Art Gallery (off Gresham Street)

The First World War involved considerable sacrifice both on the front line, as well as at home. Guildhall Art Gallery’s new exhibition explores the personal stories of those involved as they grappled with separation from loved ones and kept the country moving.

Immerse yourself in this multisensory journey that explores heritage, memory and loss. Featuring artist Jane Churchill’s installation Degrees of Separation, Echoes weaves in the work of 240 students as they explore with Jane the impact of the war in this exhibition that is part created museum, part archive of dreams.

Echoes Across the Century is conceived and delivered by Livery Schools Link and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, in partnership with Guildhall Art Gallery.
