IWM's exceptional collection is one of the most important representations of twentieth century British art in the world, comprising many great works from the British government war art schemes of the First and Second World Wars.

However less widely known is IWM's contemporary art collection, as today the museum continues to commission artists such as Steve McQueen,Roderick Buchanan and Langlands & Bell.

Art from Contemporary Conflict provides an introduction to this remarkable collection, showcasing a range of powerful works responding to the changing nature of contemporary warfare and conflicts including Northern Ireland, the Falklands, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
