Murray White of the Toronto Star delves into the much anticipated In/Future visual art and music festival opening at Ontario Place. The opening installations features a body of work by gallery artist Max Dean who incorporates the salvaged figures from the original Wilderness Adventure ride.

"In/Future is no small feat. By the time of its opening, more than 60 art installations will fill the west island, inside and out. The Small World music festival is making its home inside In/Future this year, which means more than 40 concerts on the site over its 10-day run."

The In/Future Festival takes place from Sept. 15 to 25 on Ontario Place’s west island. See infuture.ca for tickets and information.

Dean salvaged about a dozen broken-down animatronic figures, including this bull moose, from Ontario Place in the winter, with a mind to putting them back in September as a sculptural installation for In/Future. He also made photographs, including this one, which is modeled after a classic painting by Thomas Eakins.
