Redefining Home | Curators Talk and Attic Tour
Join Redefining Home curators -- Meghan Drascic-Gaudio, Hailey Graham, and Madeleine Howard -- as they discuss uncovering the story of Harold and Hana Kawasoe. Tours of the attic where the young couple lived will also be provided. On March 14th, hear artist Lillian Michiko Blakey speak to the inspiration and meaning behind her works. On March 30th, hear both artists, Lillian and Laura Shintani, speak.
Redefining Home: A Story of Japanese Canadian Resettlement in Toronto tells the story of Harold and Hana Kawasoe, who lived in the attic of Campbell House Museum from 1948 to 1951. The exhibition follows Harold and Hana on their journey from British Columbia to Toronto, where they planted new roots, and examines the broader narrative of the forced relocation of Japanese Canadians to Toronto following the Second World War.
Redefining Home includes contemporary art installations by Lillian Michiko Blakey and Laura Shintani, who reflect on Harold's and Hana's stories and their own experiences of being Japanese Canadian. The artists further explore ideas of home, identity, loss, and resilience.
Curators talk free with admission to Campbell House Museum ($10/ adult, $6/ senior). OMA and Attractions Ontario complementary admission accepted.
