Queer Futures

Join Heather Davis, Assistant Professor of Culture and Media at The New School in New York, as she explores some of the queer, unintended consequences of the current environmental crisis, from the birth of new organisms to re-envisioning wasted landscapes. Drawing upon new work by Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, Davis will discuss how artists are approaching the novel ecologies of the Anthropocene.

In English with bilingual question period.

Included with admission to the Gallery. 


The next Meet the Expert event related to the Anthropocene exhibition will take place on Saturday, February 23, 2019, with Sean Kheraj, Associate Professor of Canadian and Environmental History at York University. Learn more
