This project will re-imagine what it means to live sustainably in Markham, a rapidly urbanizing area with prime agricultural land and one of North America’s most diverse communities. Organizers have invited over 30 international, national, and local artists who work in a variety of artistic media (from sculpture to data visualization) to transform the space at the Markham Museum’s Heritage site By presenting creative and challenging artworks outside of a typical gallery setting, Landslide will contribute to a growing public dialogue within Markham, Toronto, the GTA, Canada and internationally about how we live in and plan for a planet in transition.
