“War in the Abstract: Art as a Window into Canada’s Military Past”
Art, in all its abstraction, has the ability to bring us closer than any other medium to understanding what it must have been like to experience war. Join Matt Symes as he examines art from the First World War held in the Beaverbrook Collection at the Canadian War Museum as well as other pieces held at the Library and Archives of Canada. From the famous members who went on to create the Group of Seven to the prolific but virtually unknown Mary Riter Hamilton, these spectacular images offer a sensory engagement in one of the most defining moments in Canadian history.
