Most Canadians have not experienced the horrors of war: the waste of human life and the loss of the dreams of ordinary people during times of conflict. Our exhibit consists of works that celebrate fanciful flights of freedom; talismans that are symbols of life, death, hope, respect, memory, and resilience; tributes to all who seek freedom and rise above the challenges of war and tragedy. These themes are explored in a multiplicity of media and in a contemporary way.

This exhibition would like to create a dialog between historical and contemporary concepts of freedom.
