TOM-regTOM Talks explore themes and issues brought to light by our current exhibitions. Always free, and always intriguing.

Please join us as Dick Averns gives an illustrated talk, addressing his work in the current exhibition If it Weren't for the War, and discussing war art in general. An interdisciplinary artist and writer, Dick Averns' practice probes how spaces are valued, bought, sold, exchanged, bartered or fought over. An official war artist, Averns was deployed with the Multinational Force and Observers and is also the first non-fiction writer selected as a Canadian war artist, to publish research into official war art and the War on Terror. All are welcome.
