This coming Monday, I will be participating in a conversation with my dear friends Duane Linklater and Raymond Boisjoly as the first public art talk of Evergreen’s new contemporary art initiative on Toronto’s Lower Don Trail, curated by Kari Cwynar. The public art program will feature an ongoing series of site-specific projects, performances, talks and workshops, and Duane is slated to undertake the inaugural commission in late 2016-2017.
Together we will discuss Duane and Raymond’s work as artists, focusing on the critical negotiation of the land as a concept in relation to Indigenous realities and contemporary practice. We will begin from the site of the Don Valley itself, considering what it means to think and work collectively. Undoubtedly, all kinds of other concerns and curiosities will be raised, and if their social media presence is any indication, it should be raucous.
