Anthropocene

Explore the impact of human activity on Earth through photography, film installations and interactive technologies. 

Friday, September 28, 2018 to Sunday, February 24, 2019

Anthropocene is a major contemporary art exhibition featuring new works from the collective of Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier.

Through a variety of techniques, the three Canadian artists have created a spectacular and compelling visual experience inviting reflection upon the environmental and ethical issues surrounding our exploitation of Earth’s resources.

Presenting some thirty new photographic prints along with high-definition murals by Burtynsky and film installations by Baichwal and de Pencier, Anthropocene explores the effects of human activity on the planet in artworks that are at once subtle and striking. Bringing us images of places such as the Dandora landfill in Nairobi, log booms on Vancouver Island, and the Gotthard Base railway tunnel in the Swiss Alps, the collective takes an unprecedented look at the pervasive and complex repercussions of our modern way of life.

Visitors can also immerse themselves in areas undergoing rapid change, thanks to augmented reality installations and visitor-activated films. Download the AVARA mobile app in advance – coming soon to Google Play and the Apple App Store – or use one of the available devices in the exhibition.

Anthropocene is organized by the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario, in partnership with Fondazione MAST.
