Ever Elsewhere: Siting a Mennonite Imaginary

10.09.20 - 09.01.21

Ever Elsewhere brings together the work of six contemporary Canadian artists of Mennonite heritage whose work shares a common interest in the experience of actual and imaginary borderlands, and how migration has shaped notions of identity and cultural belonging. Mennonites have long characterized themselves as a migrant people – existing in relation to stories, histories, and landscapes that are “ever elsewhere.” This exhibition explores issues of cultural nostalgia, the work of home-ing and rehome-ing, and the relationship between cultural migration and settler history in the land now called Canada.
