Abstract:

"During the Second World War, a secret military camp where American, Canadian and British allies came to learn about codes, explosives and espionage was set up on the outskirts of Oshawa, Ontario. Known as Camp X, it trained many agents, including, briefly, Ian Fleming, the James Bond novelist. In 2002, Oshawa#x92;s Robert McLaughlin Gallery mounted an exhibition that explored some of its implications. Guest-curated by Gary Greenwood, with artists Steven Frank, Anitra Hamilton, Nina Levitt and Sean McQuay, it imaginatively engaged ideas of memory, information coding and the struggles of wartime."--www.canadianart.ca.
