Exploring themes of intercultural translation, displacement and identity construction, this exhibition brings together a group of Canadian artists from diverse cultural backgrounds whose works examine the immigrant condition.  The project crosses beyond the borders of the University of Waterloo Art Gallery into the broader space of the Fine Arts Department, engaging shared public areas in East Campus Hall as well as the building’s exterior.

Yonder has been organized by the Koffler Gallery, Toronto, and supported by lead exhibition sponsor Partners in Art, with additional support from Circuit Gallery and the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto.

The exhibition continues at UWAG from January 12 to March 4, 2017.
