Clash: Conflict and Its Consequences

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.

Organized by the National Gallery of Canada.

Panel discussion: The Use of Photography in Documenting Conflicts, Saturday 2 March at 2 pm. Ticket required.
