In the exhibition Finding "Camp X" four artists, Steven Frank, Sean McQuay, Anitra Hamilton and Nina Levitt, consider the deathly nature of a place that no longer exists, where people were trained in horrific skills, and which has become a fascinating part of the lost history of Durham Region. Camp X was a secret military ficility established in Canada by a branch of British M16 initially to train American military and intelligence personnel. It was created by the Canadian (Sir) William Stephenson ("Intrepid") after the war in Europe had begun but during the time when the USA remained neutral. A farm outside the quiet town of Whitby, Ontario was an ideal location.
