Langham Galleries- Kim Bruce – ‘Disbound’ & Taiken – Memory & Reflection Exhibit – from Sep 8 to Oct 29
Shows from September 8th until October 29th. Galleries Open Thursdays through Sundays 1-4pm
DisBound is an exhibition about education for girls. It’s about choice. And gender inequality. If girls are educated and given choices, they can influence the world. DisBound is also a bookbinding term that means to remove the book pages from its bindings; it is also a metaphor for removing girls from the bonds of tradition so they can get an education.
Taiken – Memory & Reflection traveling exhibition from the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre, Burnaby. AND Kind appreciation to Chuck Tasaka for loaning artifacts from his collection. Since 1877, Japanese Canadians have contributed their skills and abilities to building a prosperous life in Canada. Their personal experiences (taiken) help us understand the challenges of immigration, racism, and the extreme struggles during the Second World War.
