Human Capital

Contemporary Calgary, Calgary, AB - To Jan 29, 2023

by Robin Laurence

Curated by Tak Pham and presented in partnership with Regina’s MacKenzie Art Gallery, this group show examines the history and impacts of Canada’s immigration policies, focusing on the ways in which human beings are treated as “capital” in the forging of a “Canadian” identity. The 12 artists represented here employ photography, video and other media to question how new immigrants are positioned within our socio-economic system and the human potential that is lost in the process.
