Whose Stories? Reflecting on the experiences and narratives of “others,” this exhibition shares the work of six artists of Asian descent. Through video installation, photography, animation, print media, drawing, collage, and restored ceramic works, artists Diyan Achjadi, Load na Dito, Naoko Fukumaru, Tomoyo Ihaya, Mark Salvatus, and UJINO convey personal histories told within a community of artists and woven across generations. Curated by Makiko Hara.

JANA SASAKI: Injustice and Identity addresses the history of Japanese internment and the complexities of her family’s mixed-race or Hapa identity. The exhibition also includes recent photo and text-based works by Sasaki that focus on the history of the Japanese community on Powell Street in Vancouver, BC. These works incorporate memories of Japantown in Vancouver from before World War II, the 1960s and 80s.


Incorporated in 1978, the Kamloops Art Gallery serves residents of and visitors to Kamloops (pop. 90,280) and the surrounding Thompson-Nicola Regional District (pop. 132,6663) as well as national and international audiences.
