Built on Genocide is a reckoning, a call to action, and an unflinching look at the colonial foundations of Canada that remain intact today. Created by artist Jay Soule | CHIPPEWAR from the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation (Deshkaan Ziibing Anishinaabeg), Built on Genocide is a powerful visual record of the 19th-century buffalo genocide that accompanied John A. MacDonald’s colonial expansion west with the railroad. Working from archival records, Soule combines installation and pop art paintings to connect the past with the present, demanding the uncomfortable acknowledgment that Canada is a nation built on genocide.

In The Wake of Progress - Originally conceived for the multiple digital screens that are normally filled with advertising, on Yonge-Dundas Square in the centre of Toronto’s downtown shopping strip, world-renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky’s In the Wake of Progress is a fully choreographed blend of photographs and film clips that tells the epic tale of humanity’s impact on the planet. Reconceived for touring as an immersive, indoor, epic journey, In the Wake of Progress is a powerful work that speaks to the climate crisis on the scale it deserves; with a score by Phil Strong, vocals by iskwē, produced by Bob Ezrin, the impact is unforgettable.
