The Great War: As recorded through the Fine and Popular Arts

  • 5 September — 2 October 2014 *on now

To commemorate The First World War, LISS FINE ART is staging an exhibition in conjunction with Morley Gallery at Morley College, a stone’s throw from the Imperial War Museum. Based on a collection of remarkable paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, posters, photographs and ephemera, this exhibition records The Great War as it was seen in both official and unofficial art. Through presenting examples of the Fine Arts together with the Popular Arts the exhibition seeks to examine the difference between various responses to war – and how different groups, (women, soldiers, pacifists etc.) were presented.

Zeppelin Nights: London in the First World War

  • 18 September 2014 6:30-8pm

For most of us the thought of ‘London at war’ means just one thing – the Blitz. That extraordinary drama so dominates the idea of wartime London that it is hard to imagine the city and its people affected in any special way by the war of 1914-18. The truth is much more interesting. Join Professor Jerry White to explore how the First World War utterly dominated London life, changing the city and its people for generations to come.

Professor Jerry White is an award-winning Historian and Author and teaches History at Birkbeck, University of London.

  • 16-17

Penny Lecture

Penny Lecture | On Liberty by Shami Chakrabarti

  • 25 November 2014 6:30-8pm

On 11 September 2001, our world changed. The West's response to 9/11 has morphed into a period of exception. Governments have decided that the rule of law and human rights are often too costly. In this Penny Lecture, Shami Chakrabarti, Director of leading Human Rights organisation Liberty, explores why our fundamental rights and freedoms are indispensable. She shows, too, the unprecedented pressures those rights are under today. Drawing on her own work in high-profile campaigns, from privacy laws to anti-terror legislation, Chakrabarti shows the threats to our democratic institutions and why our rights are paramount in upholding democracy.
