Featured artists: Nobuo Kubota, Cindy Mochizuki, Kazuo Nakamura, Emma Nishimura, Louise Noguchi, Jon Sasaki, Aiko Suzuki, Shizuye Takashima.
Yo-in 余韻 Reverberation questions the legacy of the Japanese Canadian internment and examines its continued reverberation in today’s world. YO-IN brings together two groups of contemporary artists of Japanese Canadian ancestry: senior artists who lived through internment juxtaposed with the current generation. Rather than a literal retelling, the selected artworks address themes of memory, place, and identity.
