Royal Ontario Museum – Being Japanese Canadian: reflections on a broken world

Explore a series of artworks interspersed throughout the Sigmund Samuel Gallery of Canada, and encounter the personal perspectives on the exile, dispossession, and internment of Japanese Canadians during the 1940s. This exhibition features contemporary artists who experienced this history first hand, and those who grapple with their parents and grandparents’ experiences. Being Japanese Canadian prompts us to reflect on the long-lasting ramifications of this historical Canadian injustice, and what it means to be Canadian today.

A new exhibit, opening at the ROM in February 2019.
