The war in Iraq, officially named “Operation Iraqi Freedom” by the United States armed forces, is winding down. The exhibition War Work is an invitation to reflect on this war, and on the lingering impacts of this and other armed conflicts around the world. Six artists — Sandow Birk, the Combat Paper Project, Daniel Heyman, John Risseeuw, Ehren Tool, Megan Vossler — address war and its effects through drawing, printmaking and papermaking, book arts, and ceramics. Working across the United States, these artists are observers, critics and commentators, advocates and therapeutic healers. They join a distinguished historical pantheon of artists who, through provocative and beautiful work, force audiences to confront the realities of war, reflect on man’s inhumanity to man, and help to heal the wounds of war.
