Over the course of ten days, the Southdown Industrial Area in Mississauga is transformed into a site-specific contemporary art exhibition designed to expand perspectives on climate change, environmental crisis, and resilience. With commissioned works by Canadian and international artists, The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea creates an operatic experience of elemental forces, geopolitical processes, and environmental violence impacting the Earth. Contained within a roughly 1.5km2 zone in Mississauga’s Southdown Industrial Area (bordered by Clarkson to the north and Lake Ontario to the south) this exhibition moves among many complex sites in the area, including a cement plant, an oil and lubricants refinery, a carbon dioxide production facility, a wastewater treatment plant, a fruit distribution centre, and parkland. Through artistic practices, cultural inquiry, and political mobilization, The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea invites publics to create new encounters in the common struggle for a future.
