IT’S ALL HAPPENING SO FAST
A COUNTER-HISTORY OF THE MODERN CANADIAN ENVIRONMENT
The Canadian Centre for Architecture invites you to the opening of the exhibition It’s All Happening So Fast: A Counter-History of the Modern Canadian Environment, curated by CCA Director Mirko Zardini. On the occasion of Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, the exhibition explores the contradictory relationship between Canada’s idealized wilderness and its simultaneous exploitation through a series of stories that trace changing notions of the relationship between people and nature.
