Edward Burtynsky featured in Anthropocene – human impact
The Anthropocene exhibition continues its world tour and will be on view at Techniska Museet in Stockholm, following its installation at Malmö Museums.
In the exhibition, artists Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier encourage us get closer to the situations where our impact is most obvious and most striking, with the help of traditional photography, film and surrounding augmented reality (AR). The Anthropocene Project explores places that we are all responsible for but that we otherwise rarely see. From concrete embankments covering 60% of China’s coast, the world’s largest excavators in a German open pit and calcium carbonate mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains, to the devastation of Canadian primeval forest, an Italian marble quarry and one of the world’s largest landfills in Dandora, Kenya.
The touring exhibition is organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa in collaboration with the Fondazione MAST, in Bologna.
