I am land
Curated by Maya Wilson Sanchez, Union Station, Toronto, 2022.
I am land is a three-part exhibition series that explores the role of the artist as a chronicler. This exhibition brings attention to stories that come directly from the land. Engaging with storytelling practices specific to a certain place, the artworks in this show highlight history-making as a site-specific exercise.
Waard Ward presented Flowers for Majd Kaleel and Flowers for Anesian Issa. Created in collaboration with artists Darren Rigo and Nicolas Fleming, these photographs featured floral arrangements created by newcomer participants of floristry workshops led by Syrian florist Abd Al-Mounim.
Produced by ArtworxTO, City of Toronto's Year of Public Art.
