Art Gallery of Hamilton Premieres Edward Burtynsky Photographic Exhibition

On November 17th the Art Gallery of Hamilton premiered its most recent exhibition, Edward Burtynsky: Chai. This photographic exhibition features the 18 images from the limited edition Burtynsky portfolio of the same name. The images, commissioned for the National Holocaust Monument in Ottawa, were created as part of a 4,000 km journey by the artist and his team to capture the “scarred” landscapes of Holocaust sites from across eastern Europe.

The Chai portfolio and images were donated by Gail Lord as a gift to the Gallery.

Fallen Statues - A Conversation About Public Space and History

This is a recording of the first session of the Creative Communities Commons (CCC) series at the School of Cities.

Gail Lord has developed a concept for an “Aware-house,” not a ware house, but an Aware-house as a place to put memorials and other works that have been removed from public squares. It is neither shrine nor graveyard, but a site of truth, reconciliation, and collective recovery where activists, artists, curators, historians, political scientists, psychologists, sociologists, and the public can come together.
