Opening Reception: 20 September 2012 pm with DJ set by ELECTRIC YOUTH
This group exhibition explores the idea of artists’ experiences with the Canadian “landscape.” It offers locations and places as alien, foreign, new, and fantastical, with a hint of nostalgia, creating an atmosphere of reflection and a meditation on the mundane and the science-fiction element of landscape. Through aural and visual scapes and interventions within the given spaces, the exhibition will give birth to a new place of reflection.
