The Universities Art Association of Canada and the SFU School for the Contemporary Arts invite you to attend a virtual book launch and roundtable for two new publications, The Bomb in the Wilderness by John O’Brian (UBC Press, 2020) and Through Post-Atomic Eyes, edited by Claudette Lauzon and John O’Brian (MQUP, 2020).

Photography and contemporary art contribute significantly to shaping public perceptions of nuclear events, and offer a provocative lens through which to comprehend the by-products of the atomic age.

Join us for a roundtable conversation on a wide-ranging set of topics, from Canada’s nuclear footprint to weapons proliferation and climate change.

Speakers: John O’Brian, Claudette Lauzon, Lindsey A. Freeman, and Erin Siddall.

The event will include a live Q+A moderated by Svitlana Matviyenko.
