Presented by the University of Toronto Scarborough’s FLOURISH Research Cluster

Through a discussion of Myers’ recent multi-media artwork, “Overture for Sterling Road,” comprised of a lightbox photo work and related audio and augmented reality walk, artist, educator Lisa Myers and urban studies scholar Heather Dorries will consider relational conceptions of land not evident in urban development and planning. The talk will consider how Myers’ work questions current predatory real estate practices and celebratory consumerism as facets of ongoing colonialism, and encourages viewers to imagine alternate relationships to place.
