Answer the Call: First World War Posters

23 May - 10 May
This exhibition forms part of the Ulster Museum's programme to mark the centenary of the First World War. It presents a dazzling selection from the History Department's large collection of First World War posters, illustrating various aspects of the drive for recruitment between 1914 and 1918 and a range of visually-exciting calls for civilian support for the war effort.
                       
This exhibition contains nearly 60 posters from the Ulster Museum's extensive collection of First World War posters (c.230 in total and displays them in three broad groups - Parliamentary Recruiting Committee posters (1915-1916); Irish Recruiting Posters (1914-1918) and posters promoting civilian support for the war effort, including two striking posters by the celebrated graphic artist Frank Brangwynn.
 
This is the first exhibition in Ireland which displays these posters as a large group, with the emphasis on the role of images in the story of war and as agents of media and marketing. It will be of special attraction to all with an interest in the history of the First World War in Ireland, and the role of graphic art and popular imagery in promoting support for it.

10am - 5pm Tuesday - Sunday
Closed Mondays (excluding NI Bank Holidays)
