From Here to There...
Curated by Kulwinder Bajar and Mark Jones
From Here to There... represents the third collaboration between InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre, South Asian Visual Arts Collective and the Desh Pardesh Festival. The works in this exhibit survey the history and collective memory of localized and transient cultural communities – a journey into the dislocation of history, culture and identity within a contemporary landscape. Roark Andrade’s Suburban Little India examines the localized expansion of the South Asian presence in the northwest corner of Metropolitan Toronto; using a combination of documentary film placed in front of a web-based collage of video, photos, drawings, text, music, links, and postings, Andrade speculates on the present and future for this evolving pocket of culture. damian lopes' Project X: 1497-1999, a work in development over several years, is a poetry-multimedia installation exploring discovery, technology and colonialism through Vasco da Gama’s first voyage from Portugal to Africa and South Asia.
