Abstract (English)

"A group exhibition of diverse works by both Canadian and international artists, War at a Distance explores practices of representation implicated in how Canadians are struggling to make sense of the war in Afghanistan. [...] Blurring distinctions between art and journalism, documentary practice and aesthetics, galleries and broadcast media, war artists and combatant-diarists, The War at a Distance exhibition, gallery discussions, and symposium at Ryerson University, look at the mediation of war and grapples with questions that emerge when artistic and journalistic forms are brought into relation." -- Publisher's website.
