Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?

November 15, 2018 to November 10, 2019

The exhibition is named after a major work by Jean McEwen, whose experience offers a powerful inspiration that expresses timeless questioning on identity, which invites us to examine our collective history differently. The exhibition assembles more than 40 works, including drawings, prints, graphic design, installations, paintings, photographs and sculptures from different periods.
