Volver (to return, to become) is an exhibition that shares immigration-related viewpoints of Latin American artists in Vancouver. These artists have diverse back-and-forward relationships with Canada and their countries of origin. Their movement and cultural fusion seeps into their work, their physical mobility parallels their identity in constant flux, becoming their very unique hybrid-selves. The complexities that arise from moving across borders and becoming an immigrant of Latin American heritage come to the surface with these works.

The works in Volver (to return, to become) offer its audience a personal connection to the sensation of feeling foreign and becoming someone else. Loss, dislocation, exoticism, and cultural hybridity are just a handful of the themes explored in this exhibition.
