A Space Gallery is proud to partner with SAVAC (South Asian Visual Arts Centre) and the Images Festival to present Monitor Reruns. The exhibition brings together five Canadian artists whose works represent the last decade of Monitor and engage with themes ranging from personal narratives of trauma to accounts of colonial history, migration and queerness. Monitor Reruns looks to the past to reinterpret the politics, histories and identities that continue to shape the South Asian diaspora and subcontinent.
