Accompanying the 2018 exhibition Bombhead at the Vancouver Art Gallery, curated by John O'Brian, this booklet serves as a small catalogue of this thematic exhibition exploring the nuclear age. Featuring contemporary artists alongside both pre- and postwar works, this catalogue was designed to contextualize the exhibition inside a facsimile of literature disseminated by the Canadian Emergency Measures Organization in the 1960s. Using illustrations from the original government-issued booklets, this piece was designed to demonstrate O'Brian's unique curatorial vision within an object that looks as though it belongs within the display cases of the exhibit itself.
