The World That Surrounds You Wants Your Death

During the month of August, the McCord Museum is hosting the installation* The World That Surrounds You Wants Your Death by Jason Edward Lewis (Cherokee, Hawaiian, Samoan). The work questions our ways of communicating with each other, how we position ourselves within wider cultural geographies, and how we assert ourselves in relation to our own expectations and those of our communities, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. This interactive digital poem is part of the PoEMM series.

Fee: Free with the purchase of an admission ticket
Location: Atrium of the McCord Museum

* Due to COVID-19 measures, the installation cannot be used by the public but will be activated once per hour by a member of the Museum staff.
