2018 Open Exhibition

Group Exhibition
Legacies: Our Heritage Through Our Grandmothers' Eyes

May 1–June 28, 2018
Canadian Language Museum
Glendon Gallery, 2275 Bayview Ave

This exhibition combines portraits of immigrant women from 24 different countries with their granddaughters’ reflections on their legacies. These stories of hardship and resilience reflect immigrant life, the changing family in Canada, feminism, intergenerational relationships, and aging from many cultural and religious perspectives. The women represented are from Asia, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, India, and the Middle East. Each photo is accompanied by the granddaughter’s reflections in English, French, and the grandmother’s native language.
