Clash: Conflict and its Consequences
23 Jan 2014 - 30 Mar 2014
The Reach Gallery Museum, Abbotsford, BC
This exhibition draws upon works in the collection to present war and conflict as complex phenomena, ones that have far reaching consequences for both those directly engaged in it, and those at various points of remove. Central to this exhibition is photography’s relation to trauma and remembrance, at a personal, communal and national level, and issues of what constitutes history, for whom and why.
