Land|Slide: Possible Futures

Janine Marchessault [Project Lead and Curator] - Massive Public Art Exhibition in Markham, Ontario, September 21 - October 14, 2013

"LINES ARE BIOPHYSICAL, EXPERIENTIAL AND CONCEPTUAL DIVISIONS, JUNCTURES AND CONNECTIONS TIED TO THE HISTORY OF LAND"

LAND|SLIDE : Possible Futures is a large site specific Art Exhibition in 2013 in Markham, Ontario, one of the oldest, most culturally diverse and fastest growing suburbs in North America. The line is a critical formal element of the exhibition. In 2010, a proposal for a food belt in the Markham area, a line designed to curtail development into Ontario’s prime agricultural lands was narrowly defeated.
LAND|SLIDE is a multisectoral project that invites 20 artists—local and international, emerging and established—who work in a variety of media, and whose practice has been engaged with ecological issues to develop different interpretations of the concept of the line.
