2016/2017 marked a number of anniversaries in Canada’s settler history. To engage in ongoing conversations dealing with identity and space, we launched Prendre Place / Taking Place. Conceived to take up transdisciplinary considerations of space and its accompanying baggage, it is also a place for artists to take that place/their place, to claim it, to own it, to inhabit it. This, the 2ndedition, furthers those questions with seven international artists driving the narrative through stop signs, veering off path.
