11/07/2015 00:00:00 True Patriot Love Exhibition Downtown Free

Taken from a verse of the Canadian national anthem, True Patriot Love addresses the ways in which immigrant artists interpret and internalize patriotism in Canada, how they leave an imprint on a geographical and metaphorical landscape and map their own trajectories of their adopted homeland defining an alternative national identity. As immigrants to Canada, our “patriot love” is challenged, our emotional attachment to this nation is closely scrutinized and any possible perception we have of belonging to this land is instead questioned by politicians. Through video, photography, performance, printmaking and drawing the artists breed new voices, translate images and interpret languages that offer the potentiality of a new Canadianness.
