June Clark’s works explore the intersection of family history, recollection and identity. Clark grew up in Harlem, a major centre of Black cultural and artistic excellence. In 1968 she moved to Toronto, where she continues to live and create art. Both cities have played important roles in her art and life. Clark began working in photography, with Toronto’s Baldwin Street Gallery, and later co-founded the Women’s Photography Co-op. Today, her practice extends to sculpture, collage and photoetching, and revolves around the memories and stories that have deeply impacted her life.

The First World War is recognized as a period of mass violence and destruction, but also as a beginning. The war ushered in technological innovation, mechanizing and recording war in ways previously impossible. The growing pervasiveness of photography resulted in a conflict well-documented by military officials, press agencies, and amateurs alike. The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) holds nearly 500 albums from this period, a unique and extensive collection donated in 2004 by a private collector. The albums reveal different aspects of the relationship between warfare and photography; retrospectively, all of them—personal, official, and commercial—engage in a dialogue with history by presenting unique visual narratives that uphold or challenge historical perceptions of war. The breadth of albums and accounts—British, French, German, Canadian, Austrian, American, Australian, Italian, Czech, and Russian—expose the multiplicities of experience as well as the commonalities of war.

Self-styling, attitude, and linguistic ingenuity are but three ways in which the urgent spirit of hip hop culture exceeds the various mediums aimed at capturing and commodifying this highly innovative and often intangible culture.
