In the form of limited-term on-site interventions at Rouge National Park, artists’ works consider the political, economic and cultural implications of the stories we tell about ourselves through our relationships to land. These works critique concepts of nationhood by reconstructing narratives of identity that embrace indigeneity, challenge colonialism and reimagine contemporary Canada.

LandMarks2017/Repères2017 invites people to creatively explore and deepen their connection to the land through a series of contemporary art projects in and around Canada’s National Parks and Historic Sites.

A special thank you to faculty  Laura Millard & Min Sook Lee for leading this engaging project!
