LandMarks2017 Repères2017: The Book

 

Monday, July 9, 2018

LandMarks2017/Repères2017 was a Canada 150 Signature Project of large-scale, participation-oriented art and activities of national scope. OCAD U was a founding partner of the project and was among 16 universities that took part. To commemorate the project, Partners in Art (PIA) has collaborated with Magenta Publishing to create a limited-edition book for members, sponsors, and participating artists that may also be accessed online.

LandMarks2017/Repères2017: The Book includes work by faculty and students across Canada alongside the work of 12 artists and several essays. Dr. Vladimir Spicanovic, Dean of OCAD U’s Faculty of Art, contributed an essay titled Pedagogies of the Land.

Funded by the Government of Canada in partnership with PIA, Landmarks 2017 invited Canadians to creatively explore and deepen their connection to the land through a series of contemporary art projects across the country in national parks and historic sites.

In the winter 2017 semester, Min Sook Lee and Laura Millard led a cross-disciplinary course that resulted in an exhibition for the project at Rouge Beach. Students engaged with diverse issues including concepts of nature, post-colonial issues of nationhood and narratives of identity, community and citizenship.
