Lost Generation

  • 28 March — 7 May 2015 *on now

100 years ago the youth of Britain were caught up in the excitement of fighting for the honour and glory of their king and country.

If you were a teenager in 1914 a third of your friends would have been dead 4 years later, those who did survive would have been physically injured and mentally scarred.

Lost Generation is an Arts Council funded initiative by artist Andy Farr and Batley School of Art to make the WW1 centenary more relevant to today’s young people. The exhibition will consist of a mix of painting and sculpture by the artist and students at Batley School of Art, as well as work from previous collaborations with Cockburn School, Leeds and Trinity School, Leamington Spa.
