What will the human body look like several links along the Darwinian chart of natural selection? Given our increasingly intimate relationship with technologies such as genetic and surgical modification, exposure to radiation, the increasing presence of pharmaceuticals in our food supply, and biotechnology it is likely that in order for our species to survive, it will be necessary to evolve vastly different physical characteristics. Future Species: Hybrids is the first in a cycle of four exhibitions exploring the future of the human species at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art realized through the fundraising efforts of partners in art. www.partnersinart.ca
The exhibitions are sponsored by partners in art, UBS, Onex, BMO Nesbitt Burns, Donna and Robert Poile, AASTRA Telecom. All programs and activities at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art are further supported by Toronto Culture, Ontario Arts Council, individual membership and private donations.
