Canada: Day 1 Halifax / Pier 21 March 18, 2017 – November 12, 2017
April 11, 2017
Canada: Day 1 Halifax celebrates the experience of immigrants who’ve come to Canada. This exhibition feels particularly special to me as my Opa immigrated to Canada through Pier 21 in the 1950’s. Although I am not an immigrant myself, I liken my own journey of moving across the country by myself to that of my grandparents. Although I am sure their journey was much harder than my own, I do understand some of their challenges just a little bit more.

I am in an exhibition at Inter/Access this month, curated by Aliya Karmali.
According to the I/A website: “Infinity of Intimate Space features four emerging artists whose works explore space through memories and dreams. The exhibition is inspired by Gaston Bachelard’s book, The Poetics of Space, which discusses the phenomenologist’s study of the sites of our intimate lives. From the intimacy of our houses, to desolate landscapes and brimming cities, to the deconstruction of digital forms, what reveries do we explore within the spaces we immerse ourselves in?”
The exhibition runs November 16th to December 10th, 2016.
