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. Comprising recent and new works in a variety of media, including site-specific installations, Yonder approaches the notion of immigration through a process of “personal sociology,” moving from an investigation of subjective inquiries to larger questions and shared experiences. Following its recent installation at the Koffler Gallery and Artscape Youngplace, 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.
