The Art of Command: Portraits and Posters from Canada’s Afghan Mission is a solo exhibition by Gertrude Kearns, Canada’s leading contemporary war artist. This exhibition examines the roles of specific highly ranked individuals who not only fought in but commanded Canada’s war in Afghanistan.
Her work focuses on the complexities and consequences of military command in challenging situations, and reveals the inner struggles of those at the Afghan operation’s highest levels.
This exhibition is not mere homage to Canada’s mission in Afghanistan; it’s a reflection of the effects war has on those who call the shots on the front lines. The Art of Command takes viewers—military and civilian alike—on an emotional journey, through the presentation of fearless, self-assured and ruthlessly honest portraits of military subjects.
The AFMSA Cold War Exhibit features three iconic aircraft, a F-86 Sabre, a CF-104 Starfighter and a CF-18 Hornet.
First World War Uniforms
The Victor Taboika Exhibit of First World War Uniforms is currently on display in the Cooper-Key Hall.
