Broken Promises, presented by Landscapes of Injustice. February 28 to May 28 | Gallery B. Opening Reception: Friday, February 25, 7-9 pm

Grounded in research from Landscapes of Injustice – a seven year, multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, community engaged project, this exhibit explores the dispossession of Japanese Canadians in the 1940s. It illuminates the loss of home and the struggle for justice of one racially marginalized community. The story unfolds by following seven narrators, Broken Promises explores life for Japanese Canadians in Canada before war, the administration of their lives during and after war ends, and how legacies of dispossession continue to this day. 

Generational Echoes, Emma Nishimura. March 12 to June 4 | Gallery A. Opening Reception: Friday, March 11, 7-9 pm

Thinking about the weight of memory and the stories that are passed down from one generation to the next (and the stories that are lost as well) this exhibition presents a survey of series created by Emma Nishimura and focuses on the narratives surrounding the Japanese Canadian internment. Based in Toronto, Emma’s work ranges from traditional etchings, archival pigment prints, drawings, and audio pieces to art installations. Using a diversity of media, her work addresses ideas of memory and loss that are rooted within family stories and inherited narratives.
