Shelter - Atomicalia
November 14-19th in room 110 of La Cité
Atomic Energy, nuclear warheads, 1950s’ pop culture and controversy! Atomicalia, the accompanying art exhibition for Shelter, is curated by Dr. Mick Broderick of Murdoch University and showcases items and pop culture created during the Cold War and the post-atomic age. With items coming from Russia, the United States and Japan, Atomocalia is a stimulating visual complement to the nuclear discourse raised by Shelter.
Friday, Nov. 16, at 12 p.m. in the exhibition space, room 110.
Attend a special talk with members of the Dene tribe from Déline, N.W.T. After classified U.S. government information was made public in the ’90s, Canada discovered that the uranium that had been mined and was transported by the Dene to Port Radium in the ’40s, was used in the atomic bombs dropped on Japan.
Also speaking will be opera librettist Julie Salverson and exhibition curator Dr. Mick Broderick. Gain new insights into resource and power politics in Canada!
