As a finalist for the coveted AIMA|AGO Photography Prize, Chino Otsuka, a Japanese artist currently living in England, completed a residency at the Nikkei National Museum (NNM) in 2014. This exhibition features work inspired by that residency. Through her exploration of the NNM archives, Otsuka discovered the early history of Japanese immigrants to Canada and became fascinated with the stories of young women who came as “picture brides”.  Otsuka will visually weave the stories of these young women by combining archive images and new photographs in an audio-visual installation.  Arrival captures the time of anticipation, hope, and adventure as they began their journey to a new country.
