Contrary to how Canadian Art history has romanticized the land, our landscape is not simply a vast, pristine, wilderness. “Where do we Land?” poses questions around what land means in both contemporary and historical contexts to those who inhabit it. Current events have highlighted issues around “land” such as privilege and disenfranchisement, ownership and displacement, borders and restrictions, use and consumption, sprawl and destruction. It is through these many lenses that the exhibiting artists offer varying and unique perspectives highlighting the many relationships and responsibilities we have to the land.
