Be part of a groundbreaking public art project that will reimagine Canada in 2017
New Course from the Faculty of Art
Open to Majors and Thesis Students entering fourth-year of study in 2016-17
CROS-S4001 Landmarks: Art + Places brings together educational institutions, curators, artists and students from across the country to engage in a multi-faceted dialogue about Canada resulting in the installation of public artworks in Parks Canada sites and in an online platform. Responding to the themes of five national curators, students will engage with diverse issues such as: concepts of nature, post-colonial issues of nationhood, narratives of identity, community and citizenship, ontologies of landscape and public parks as socio-cultural spaces of collective memory and expressions of power. Drawing upon Indigenous epistemologies that consider, respect and map land acknowledgements, various methodologies will be employed. You can take this course in lieu of your thesis or as an elective.
