14-18 NOW release new season of commissions

January 2018

We’re thrilled today to be able to share the programme for 14-18 NOW’s final year.

14-18 NOW was set up to creatively commemorate the centenary of the First World Way with contemporary art commissions around the UK – and they are ending on a high for the final year.

Highlights include a William Kentridge Turbine Hall piece at Tate Modern; a Rachel Whiteread installation in North Yorkshire; a 3D film by Peter Jackson; and a monumental piece of outdoor theatre commemorating the contribution of the war wounded, taking place in London and Stockton-on-Tees. Check out the rest of the exciting programme here.

14-18 NOW has, to date, reached 30 million people with innovative campaigns and social initiatives. The programme has included over 200 artists from 35 countries in events in 160 UK locations – but it’s not over, with much more expected in the biggest year of the centenary yet.

We’re extremely proud to have worked with the diverse and disparate group of partners involved in 2013 to hammer out a name for the initiative and clarify what it would be all about. And we’re looking forward to what’s still to come with bated breath.
