Twelve artists identifying as first or second generation immigrants of colour present work uncovering and exploring their experiences, as well as the effects of racism and systemic oppression. At times poetic, at times harrowing, their work in video, sculpture, installation and textiles seeks to open up dialogue and complexify discussions surrounding migration and narratives of nationalism, benevolence, and fear.
Initially proposed by Diana Rice of the Dawson College Centre for Peace, the exhibition was also conceived to include student, or emerging artists, who were selected by a jury following an open call for submissions. Three of the five selected are Dawson students–Dallas Karonhia’nó:ron Canady Binette, Asia Mason, and Ya-Nan Song.
A collaboration with the Dawson Peace Centre, generously supported by Dawson College and the Entente Canada-Québec.
