From January 22 to March 30 the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is featuring a new exhibition of photos entitled Position As Desired: Exploring African Canadian Identity: Photographs from the Wedge Collection.
To learn more about the exhibit, Canada’s History spoke with Kristine Kovacevic, Visitor Experience Manager at Pier 21. Kristine tells us about the collection on display and how the exhibit uses visual arts to challenge our understanding of history and identity. Kristine also tells us about the public programming that Pier 21 has put together for the exhibit including panel discussions, film screenings, and a reading and book-signing with award-winning author Lawrence Hill.
Visit Pier21.ca/Position-as-Desired to learn more about the exhibit, and to RSVP for some of their exciting events (for free)!
