The Imperial War Museum's "Age of Terror" explores developments in contemporary art, beginning with images – both familiar and shocking – of the devastated Twin Towers in New York. The show goes on to display works from the U.S., Britain, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and beyond, all dealing with the consequences of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.The museum has gathered work by more than 40 artists for the biggest art show in its 100-year history.Some artists work with images that have become uneasily iconic.A final group of works, under the label "Home," includes pieces by artists from Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria about their conflict-scarred homelands, as well as works about American and British soldiers returning from war.The Imperial War Museum is not known primarily for its art, although it has a collection of 20,000 works.
