It’s All Happening So Fast – ARTS & CULTURE

It’s All Happening So Fast, on display at the University of Toronto’s Art Museum, is an exhibition that employs a multitude of materials to create intersecting narratives by multiple voices – including protagonists of the modern project, Indigenous Peoples, environmentalists, judges, artists, and photographers to challenge basic assumptions about Canada’s relationship to nature. Each of the exhibition’s narrative sequences includes environmental disasters representing six organizing themes: the failure of the modern project; resource exploitation in Canada’s northern territories; development of energy infrastructures; nuclear contamination; water and air pollution; and industrial fishing and forestry operations.

Curated by Mirko Zardini, Director of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA).

May 3 – July 15 at The University of Toronto Art Centre (15 King’s College Circle).
