An exhibit in honour of the 70thAnniversary of Japanese Canadian Internment

Yo-in 余韻 Reverberation questions the legacy of the Japanese Canadian internment and examines its continued reverberation in today’s world. YO-IN brings together two groups of contemporary artists of Japanese Canadian ancestry: senior artists who lived through internment juxtaposed with the current generation. Rather than a literal retelling, the selected artworks address themes of memory, place, and identity.
