Aird Gallery presents\, ON BEING MICHIKO: A SANSEI ARTISTS JOURNEY\, an exhibition of artworks by Lillian Michiko Blakey.\n\n The artist asks the question "Who am I?" This is a question asked by all p eople whose roots are in two cultures. Even though she was not born until the end of World War II and her parents were both born in Canada she inher ited the shame of all Japanese Canadians who were caught in the&nbsp\; dil emma of being both Japanese and Canadian.&nbsp\; Like many sansei\, third generation Japanese Canadians\, Michiko grew up denying her cultural herit age\, my first language and my people. The artist explores this history in her work.\n\n<a href="http://www.airdgallery.org/" target="_blank">www.ai rdgallery.org</a> SUMMARY:EXHIBITION: On Being Michiko URL:/en/events/2012/05/29/exhibition-on-being-michiko/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
