Xpey' for the love of our Wetlands


In keeping with the MAC’s commitment to showcasing work that provokes conversations about the beauty and importance of our natural environment and building on previous installation works, Xpey’ will be an artistic ‘deep dive’ into the fragility and splendor of our threatened wetlands.

Wetlands is a big conversation, from the intermingling of fresh and salt water in our estuaries, important nurseries for salmon, to watershed catchments and sponges that retain water for release in times of drought; Hamilton Marsh, for example. Wetlands are central to the biodiversity and health of the wild environment. To potential wetlands being returned to its natural state, notably the Parksville Wetlands, and all that entails, Xpey’ will be that conversation brought to life through an artistic lens by our team of noted local artists.
