Legacies @ Canadian Language Museum at Glendon
May 1 – Jun 28 all-day

Legacies Photo Exhibit – Opening at Glendon Gallery May 1


Join us at the Canadian Language Museum on Tuesday May 1 for the opening of the Legacies photo exhibit, created by Glendon alumna Dr. Gina Valle. Since graduating from Glendon, Gina Valle completed a Masters in Education and a PhD in Teacher Education and Multicultural Studies. Founder of Diversity Matters, Gina Valle works in Canada and abroad in the field of diversity. 

This exhibit consists of portraits of immigrant women from 24 different countries with their Canadian granddaughters’ reflections on their legacies. The women’s stories provide insights on hardship, the power of resilience, the changing family in Canada, feminism, intergenerational relationships and aging from many cultural and religious perspectives. The women showcased in Legacies are the gatekeepers of language and culture.  Each photographic portrait is accompanied by the granddaughter’s reflections in English, French and the grandmother’s native language.

Legacies has travelled to the Middle East, Asia, Scandinavia and it is with great pleasure that we welcome it to the Canadian Language Museum, as part of the Contact Photography Festival. On the evening of the opening reception, we will also include a video about Indigenous languages in Toronto by students in Glendon’s ‘Histoire vivante’ course, and the launch of the web exhibit ‘Messages from the Mosaic’.

Legacies will be on display at the Canadian Language Museum in Glendon Gallery during May and June, Tuesdays – Thursdays, 12 – 5 pm.

Opening Reception Tuesday May 1, 6-8 pm.
