In Person Friends Forum – Tuesday, Nov. 28th, 2023
|Guest Speaker Dr. Stacey Barker|
Historian for the Arts and Military History Canadian War Museum.
|TOPIC: “THE CANADIAN FORCES ARTISTS PROGRAM – GROUP 9 “|
|The Canadian Forces Artist Program – Group 9 exhibition, currently on display at the Canadian War Museum, sits within a rich tradition of official Canadian War Art, going back over a century.|
How did official war art get its start in Canada, and how did it get to where it is today? What links the contemporary artists of Group 9 to artistic forerunners such as A.Y. Jackson, Mabel May, Alex Colville, or Molly Lamb Bobak?
Dr. Stacey Barker will discuss these topics in a presentation, followed by a walkthrough of the CFAP Group 9 exhibition and Q&A.
This in person Friends Forum is a great opportunity to meet one of Canada’s premiere military historians, so come out to the museum and join us.
