The exhibition Scene Otherwise features four recent photographic projects by the artists Carole Condé and Karl Beveridge who live and work in Toronto, as part of the Mayworks festival in Halifax. The projects look at the issue of climate change and its roots in capitalist development, the dual exploitation of migrant workers and the earth, the role of public institutions in the promotion of a democratic culture, and the recent Occupy movement that expressed a new type of resistance to the economic and environmental devastation of life.The artists often work with the communities involved in their projects. The exhibition includes works produced in collaboration with migrant agricultural workers (UFCW) and public cultural workers (members of CUPE). A limited edition poster with essay by Max Haiven will be available at the closing reception.
