The Justina M. Barnicke presents two distinct exhibitions on the subject of alternative communities and collective lifestyle. Both set in a pastoral environment, Wildflowers of Manitoba finds its counterpart in the collaborative experimentations at Babyland (Sunshine Coast, British Columbia) originally started by Michael Morris, Vincent Trasov, and others in the early 1970s.
