Fall shows at the Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) until January 2020 include two exhibits curated (or co-curated) by Emily Putnam. Congratulations, Emily & Rebecca!

  • Sites of Memory: Legacies of the Japanese Canadian Internment where the histories, impacts and legacies of the Canadian government’s internment of Japanese Canadians during World War II are powerfully considered in video, installation and works on paper by three contemporary artists of Japanese-Canadian ancestry: Norman Takeuchi, Emma Nishimura and Cindy Mochizuki. Curated by PhD Cultural Mediations student E. Putnam.
  • In spring 1988, Japanese Canadians marched on Parliament Hill to pressure the government to acknowledge and offer compensation for their internment during World War II.  Inheriting Redress: The Ottawa Japanese Community Association Archive surveys the redress campaign’s visual culture, telling stories through objects loaned by the Ottawa Japanese Community Association and activists involved in the landmark effort (from cuag.ca/). Curated by PhD Cultural Mediations student E. Putnam and former Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis Postdoc R. Dolgoy in partnership with the Ottawa Japanese Community Association.
