The Bomb in the Wilderness, by John O’Brian (UBC Press, 2020)
Erin Siddall, Peace Camp Circle, 2017, in Through Post-Atomic Eyes (MQUP, 2020)
Photography and contemporary art play a significant role in shaping public perceptions of nuclear events, and offer a provocative lens through which to comprehend the by-products of the atomic age.
Please join us for a roundtable conversation on a wide-ranging set of topics, from Canada’s nuclear footprint to weapons proliferation and climate change, with guest speakers John O’Brian, Claudette Lauzon, Lindsey A. Freeman and Erin Siddall. The roundtable will be followed by a live Q+A moderated by Svitlana Matviyenko.
We are grateful to the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University and the Universities Art Association of Canada for making this event possible.
