September 28, 2018 - January 6, 2019

Anthropocene dramatically illustrates how we, individually and collectively, are leaving a human signature on our world. World-renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky and filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier have created a powerful series of new photographs, including 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.

For more information visit the exhibition webpage.
