Twelve artists from first or second generation migrant/immigrant racialized communities of colour present work exploring the racism and systemic oppression they have experienced. 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.
Vernissage: Thursday, October 8th, 2020 at 5:00pm
Artist Talk: Available soon on the Resistance website.
