They have produced major site works for The Hirshhorn Museum, Washington; Public Art Fund, New York; The Eastern State Penitentiary Museum, Philadelphia; The Hebbel Theatre, Berlin. They have also conceived a public art web project, www.eyesoflaura.org, for the Vancouver Art Gallery.

They have been included in numerous major group exhibitions in international institutions such as The Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield; MOCA-Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; MoMA-Museum of Modern Art, New York; Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, Dresden; Site Santa Fe; SFMoMA-San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and representing the Canadian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
