Sites of Memory: Legacies of the Japanese Canadian Internment
Curated by Emily Putnam

15 September 2019 – 26 January 2020
Sites of Memory: Legacies of the Japanese Canadian Internment features the work of three artists of Japanese Canadian ancestry: Norman Takeuchi (Ottawa), Emma Nishimura (Toronto) and Cindy Mochizuki (Vancouver). Their works collectively propose artmaking as a means of addressing the Canadian government’s internment of Japanese Canadians during World War II. Drawing on documentary records, Takeuchi, Nishimura and Mochizuki negotiate the complexity of reflecting on this traumatic history while articulating a delicate balance between remembering and forgetting.
