E-Flux Press release

Land|Slide Possible Futures is a contemporary public art exhibition which responds to a world in transition where the past, present and future collide. The landscape of Markham, Ontario will be transformed by the work of over 30 national and international artists to explore themes of architecture, urban ecology and living history.

The site-specific artist projects are housed at the 25-acre, open-air Markham Museum from September 21 to October 14. Land|Slide brings artists, urban planners, ecologists, educators, civic leaders and the general public together in a unique community engagement initiative that pays homage to the past and imagines possible futures.

Working in a wide range of media—from film, sculpture, installation, and performance to digitized diaries, 3D projections, and augmented reality—the invited artists have been commissioned to reinterpret the site and draw out new histories and futures for a world in dramatic transition.
