LandMarks: Art + Places is a group exhibition created by OCAD University students at Rouge National Park. The exhibition is the result of a-cross disciplinary course bringing curator Tania Willard and artists Cheryl L'Hirondelle and Camille Turner in conversation with students to produce multidisciplinary site-specific works.

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

Participating artists: Abigail Permell, Cassandra Smyth, Debora Purcelli, Dimitra Roussakis, Kaiatanoron Bush, Lizz Khan, Natasha Hirt, Robin Love, Tia Cavanagh, Yawen Guo and Vishal Luthra.

In the course, through readings, conversations with the artists and curator, site visits and ongoing discussions, students and faculty sought to problematize ideas of nationhood, concepts of nature, and explore intimate and public relationships to land. This course frames a critical context that marks a multi-faceted dialogue about land and the occasion of 150 years of Canada, pointing to futures and to much longer histories than 150 years of confederation. Dr. Vladimir Spicanovic, Dean, OCAD University Faculty of Art, is the Lead Advisor, Curriculum and Curatorial Engagement, for the LandMarks2017/ Repères2017 project. 

Faculty: Min Sook Lee and Laura Millard

Opening reception: Friday June 23, 11 a.m., Rouge Beach, Rouge National Park
