How Erica H Isomura writes into the gaps of family history⁣

How do you write about a family history that was never talked about? In this artist talk, Erica H Isomura addressed her multi-disciplinary writing and artistic practice. Erica introduced new work exploring the unknowns and gaps of her family history, a personal and artistic research project which has spanned a decade. Specifically, it focused on the repercussions of the Japanese Canadian internment era, which directly affected nearly 22,000 people of Japanese ancestry in Canada and continues to impact subsequent generations today.⁣
