This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Susan Sontag, a gifted writer and thinker. Her absence from this world will be sorely missed. In her book, Regarding the Pain of Others, she writes eloquently of the dilemma of recording in pictures the atrocities and absurdity of war. This exhibition is a visual artist’s curation of imagery made by other artists about war.
