UpComing Exhibitions


A Call for Justice: Fighting for Japanese Canadian Redress (1977-1988)

January 15 to April 2, 2018

This travelling exhibition from the Nikkei National Museum examines the hard work and perseverance of a dedicated group of community members who worked to have the injustices toward Japanese Canadians from 1942-1949 acknowledged by the government.

This powerful story of the ten year emotional struggle to achieve an apology and acknowledgment is told using historic photographs, artifacts, poetry, personal statements, art and video.


The Spanish Lady

October 2018

The Borealis Gallery is curating an exhibition to examine the realities, conditions, and legacies of the Spanish Flu in Alberta. Opening in October 2018, the exhibition will explore how individuals, communities, and the province were affected by this international pandemic. We are looking to exhibit artworks that explore illness, disease, health and healing, the Roaring Twenties, international travel, the Great War, and the disproportional effects of disease on marginalized ethnicities, classes, and socioeconomic strata.
