From the 17th May 2019, The Imperial War Museum North presents Yemen: Inside a Crisis. A free exhibition of photographs and objects from the conflict in Yemen. 

Described by the UN as the “world’s worst” humanitarian crisis, the on-going conflict in Yemen has left an estimated 80% of the country’s men, women and children in desperate need of assistance; but how has this man-made crisis affected the people of Yemen?

At the forefront of a major season of programming at IWM North, Yemen: Inside a Crisis will be the UK’s first exhibition to address Yemen’s on-going conflict and humanitarian crisis. Showcasing around 50 objects and photographs, many of which have been exclusively sourced from Yemen for this exhibition.

Key exhibits will include worn Yemeni Rial notes, charity food vouchers, medical equipment used to treat malnutrition and cholera, dog-eared school books and harrowing images captured by Yemeni photographers.

Yemen: Inside a Crisis is part of IWM’s Conflict Now strand of programming, which features opinions of individuals who have seen, experienced and worked in areas of conflict. This exhibition has been curated with the support of Lead Advisor Iona Craig, an award-winning journalist who between 2010 and 2015 was based in Sanaa as Yemen correspondent for The Times. 

The exhibition opens on 17th May 2019 at the Imperial War Museum North:
