The University of Waterloo Art Gallery and UW Fine Arts are pleased to present artists Esmond Lee, Julius Poncelet Manapul and Diana Yoo discussing their participation in the current exhibition Yonder. The evening will feature frank conversations around the ideas, motivations and processes informing their work. Exhibition co-curator Mona Filip will also be on hand to provide an overview of the project.
YONDER explores themes of intercultural translation, displacement and identity construction, bringing together a group of Canadian artists from diverse cultural backgrounds whose works examine the immigrant condition. Comprising recent and new works in a variety of media, including site-specific installations, the exhibition approaches the notion of immigration through a process of “personal sociology,” moving from an investigation of subjective inquiries to larger questions and shared experiences.
The exhibition has been organized by the Koffler Gallery, Toronto.
This event is free and open to the public
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
