Join Curator Shauna Thompson for a tour of Esker Foundation’s current exhibition.
RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting
Curated by Cheryl Sim
This group exhibition explores the multiple and complex meanings of the idea of the diaspora, its condition, and its experiences as expressed in painting. “Diaspora issues and concepts are of particular importance to me as a person of colour, born in Canada with mixed Asian origins,” says curator and director Cheryl Sim. The wide spectrum of interpretations and fruitful relationships attached to diaspora experiences knows no bounds, which promotes constant dialogue with notions of kinship and identity in the current context of globalization and mass migration.
This exhibition offers a selection of works by artists who address the question of the diaspora from various points of view.
Registration essential. In-person program.
Registration opens 13 October at 11am.
