The Georgia Straight proudly sponsors Trading Routes: Rivers, Fish and Oil at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site
Trading Routes: Rivers, Fish and Oil, is showing daily now through Spring 2016 at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site in Steveston.
Focusing on the ecology and cultural changes caused by industry and development along Northern B.C.’s riverways and eulachon "grease trails", the exhibit will enhance understanding of the impact of industrial development on B.C.’s salmon-bearing rivers—the Fraser, Skeena, Nass, and Stikine—through a collection of artwork, images, video, audio, and text.
Artists whose works are featured in the exhibit include Kenna Fair, Richard Heikkilä-Sawan, Ian McAllister, Soledad Munoz, Lyle Wilson, and more.
The exhibit is a collaboration with the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada Research/Creation Grant, Trading Routes: Grease Trails, Oil Pipelines held by Emily Carr University Professor, Ruth Beer (PI), and UBC Professor Emerita, Kit Grauer (CI).
