Event Description

Fascinations with the mushroom form and functions have shaped creative imaginations and scientific ideas for generations. Symbiosis gathers interdisciplinary contemporary artists located in British Columbia, across Canada and internationally who have produced work that explore forest ecologies and musings about mushrooms. The symbiotic relationships between fungia and boreal realms have co-dependent networks that are essential to the health and vitality of ecosystems. These interconnected relationships have inspired artists and researchers to delve into these micro and macro worlds to consider teachings from the land, medicines, and survival. Scientific and artistic curiosities of the natural world offer inquiries and explorations in Symbiosis.
