November 6
KPU Arts Speaker Series – Fire Season: Changing Depictions of Western Canadian Landscape
Kwantlen Polytechnic University
12666 72 Avenue
Spruce Atrium
Looking at the history of depictions of Western Canadian landscape, produced by artists, tourism boards, and marketing departments, this presentation by Liz Toohey-Wiese considers how economy and landscape have long been tied together in British Columbia. With the dramatic changes of climate change, and the prolonged forest fire season happening each year, this research considers changing how the history of forest fire prevention, with its accompanying posters and mascots such as “Smokey the Bear” came into being, and how artists are attempting to process these changes through their art practices. This presentation will appeal to a wide audience with cross-disciplinary research, engaging imagery, and relates to the everyday reality of living in B.C. as our climate shifts each year.
