    Every night they dissembled the shed; every morning they built it anewToronto’s Don Valley is a lush, hybrid ecosystem in the city’s east end. It cradles the Don River and now runs underneath the winding expanse of the Don Valley Parkway, its concrete, parallel artery. There is a path – an abandoned railway – many have followed to the Don from Toronto’s ultra-rich Rosedale neighbourhood: Milkman’s Lane, so named because of the delivery people who once traversed this path back and forth from the Valley, formerly a bustling industrial area with factories and farms. Currently, Milkman’s Lane leads to Evergreen Brick Works, a retrofitted brick factory and surrounding environs where curator Kari Cwynar has been programming innovative, temporary public art for the past year. This route and destination contain significant class, race and ecological tensions: histories of colonial displacement and resource extraction, pollution, neglect, so-called invasive species and squatters, including those with addiction and mental-health issues, whose alternative society has, for years, resisted Toronto’s WASPy frigidity and increasingly impossible expense. – 每天晚上,他们都会把棚屋拆散,每天早上,他们在唐东河流域建造一个郁郁葱葱的混合生态系统。它摇动着顿河,现在在奔河峡谷公园蜿蜒的宽阔的土地下奔跑,它是混凝土的、平行的动脉。有一条路——一条废弃的铁路——许多人从多伦多超富豪罗斯代尔街区走到了唐人街:米尔克曼巷,之所以命名,是因为曾经有人从山谷中来回穿行这条小路,以前是一个繁忙的工业区,有工厂。D农场。目前,Malkman的泳道通向常青砖厂,改建的砖厂和周边环境,馆长Kari Cwynar在过去一年里一直在策划创新的、临时的公共艺术。这条路线和目的地包含了显著的阶级、种族和生态紧张:殖民地迁移和资源开采、污染、忽视、所谓入侵物种和寮屋者的历史,包括那些有成瘾和精神健康问题的人,他们的替代社会已经为Y。耳朵,抵制了多伦多可怕的冷漠和越来越不可能的花费。
