Revolution Revolution

Gillian Dykeman

March 29, 30, and 31, 2019

Revolution Revolution is a performance work by Gillian Dykeman that harnesses the amazing energies generated in a room of people focusing together on a demanding task. What is the energy of capitalism? What is the energy of revolution? How can we channel our energies to address the urgent environmental concerns of our time? How do we better engineer our energetic outputs to formulate new ways of being…to radically reimagine what it is we’re doing with our lives? Our life-force? Our love?

Attendees are invited to attend an invigorating and inspirational participatory cycling class performance (wear comfortable gym clothes). No previous spin workout experience necessary.

Participants are welcome to cycle or to observe. Limited space is available per session—pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver.

The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge (SDUK) is a public program and publication series produced by the Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto Mississauga. Designed to build artistic and environmental literacy and support community engagement, the SDUK platform circulates research, ideas, and debates from a range of exigent discourses and practices, including those among the visual arts, environmental humanities, public policy, political economy, sustainable design, science and technology studies, extinction studies, and the major scientific and cultural debate of a generation—the Anthropocene. This programming is part of The Work of Wind: Air, Land, Sea, a site-specific exhibition, public program, and publication series designed to expand perspectives on climate change through artistic practices, cultural inquiry, and political mobilization.

A series of public programs will be taking place in wards across the City of Mississauga from March to August 2019. For complete details and updates, visit
