Scratching the Surface: The Post-Prairie Landscape
Curator and editor: Steven Matijcio

A multi-platform, cross-disciplinary project exploring the changing face of Winnipeg through a genre that continues to haunt the Canadian subconscious. Entwining history and zeitgeist, the meaning of "landscape" mutates with every shift in the social and cultural attitudes of its inhabitants. In this context, the "Post-Prairie" is a question that reveals itself in the relationship between people and place. Through the works of a prescient group of artists, writers, filmmakers, musicians, playwrights, and many whose practice escapes definition, this question took shape. With an exhibition, a pair of panel discussions, a film and video screening, and conversations that continue to mine the implications of this subject, this iteration of the Post-Prairie became real.
