Come explore Migrating Landscapes at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. The exhibition features an impressive abstract wooden landscape made of 28,680 feet of lumber and a series of model ‘dwellings’—from mini cabins to skyscrapers— by young architects and designers, all inspired by personal experiences of immigration and migration. The architectural models are brought to life by accompanying videos that draw on the artists’ cultural memories. Experience how migrations, and the resulting process of settling and unsettling, are expressed through the built environment that surrounds us. Channel your inner architect by trying out our ‘Boxopolis,’ ‘Napkin Sketch’ and ‘Makeup of a Model’ activities for all ages. The exhibition is curated by Winnipeg-based 5468796 Architecture and Jae-Sung Chon. Migrating Landscapes was Canada’s 2012 entry to the prestigious 13th International Architecture Exhibition–la Biennale di Venezia in Venice, Italy.

Don’t miss the Opening Reception on Thursday, May 30 at 5:30 p.m. All are welcome and admission is free. Please RSVP your attendance by May 24 with Jennifer Chisholm at jchisholm@pier21.ca or at (902) 420-6649.
