The Lieutenant Governor attended the AGO’s Anthropocene Artist’s Talk with Edward Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal, and Nicholas De Pencier.
World-renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky and filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier sat down for a conversation with AGO Director of Public Programs Devyani Saltzman about Anthropocene, their powerful series of new photographs, large-scale murals augmented by film extensions, film installations and augmented reality (AR) installations, that take us to places we are deeply connected to – but normally never see.
Informed by scientific research, powered by aesthetic vision, inspired by a desire to bear witness, they reveal the scale and gravity of our impact on the planet.
Inspiring to hear @EdwardBurtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal, & @Nickdepencier @agotoronto discuss @AnthropoceneProject – the human impact on the world cannot be ignored & through this multi-media project, we are all called to work toward a more resilient & sustainable future. #SDG17 pic.twitter.com/KvEgiWLzQk
