Cosa farete

Join me in exploring some of Ottawa’s most outstanding memorials. Along the way we consider why they look the way they do, from heroic figurative depictions to architectural spaces of contemplation. Our tour will begin at the National War Memorial on Elgin Street and proceed to nearby Confederation Park to consider the South African War Memorial and the National Aboriginal Veteran's Monument. A short bus ride will take us to the National Holocaust Monument and the Canadian War Museum, an architectural testament to war and regeneration with its contemplative Memorial Hall. Visitors are encouraged to share their thoughts on these very different creative responses to war and genocide. What is it that we remember when we look at memorials? Our discussion could even continue in the Museum's canteen. All proceeds support Team Lina Refugee Support established to reunite a Syrian refugee family separated by war https://www.facebook.com/Team-Lina-Refugee-Support

I am an art historian with a special interest in how art memorializes armed conflict. At the University of Ottawa I created two senior level courses that invited students to explore the inspired architecture of the Canadian War Museum with its outstanding art collection and the many memorials in the National Capital Region. My research provoked a deep interest in issues of remembrance and trauma in public art and memorials after the Holocaust. In 2014 I curated an exhibition that toured Canada featuring artists deployed through the Canadian Forces Artists Program. You can find my curatorial essay in Constructing the Memory of War In Visual Culture (Routledge 2018). All my tour proceeds go to Team Lina Refugee Support, established to reunite a Syrian refugee family separated by war https://www.facebook.com/Team-Lina-Refugee-Support
