Exhibition “Overt: Militarization as Ideology”

Exhibition “Overt: Militarization as Ideology”

Art Museum, University of Toronto
October 28 – November 21, 2020
Curated by Fatma Yehia

With the start of the war on terror and the proliferation of militarized technologies, many artists developed new aesthetic approaches to explore military sites and industries. Overt: Militarization as Ideology focuses on the ways in which artists have engaged aesthetically with the concept and condition of militarization. Through video, film, drawings, and installation, the exhibition highlights the human-technological relationships that have been amplified due to the ever-intensifying intrusion of military research in everyday life.
