Lest We Forget? and Wave at Imperial War Museum North

Opening in July 2018 and running until March 2019, the IWM North’s major exhibition Lest We Forget? will explore how symbols of commemoration - from the poppy to the two minute silence - have endured for a century, but also sparked controversy.

Focusing on the many ways through which the First World War has been remembered, highlights of the exhibition include works of art which were intended for a Hall of Remembrance that was never realised. Meanwhile from September to November 2018, IWM North will present Wave, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper as part of the final year of the 2014-2018 UK-wide tour of the iconic poppy installations
