Published on Jun 20, 2018
Winnipeg-based ceramics artist Grace Han is searching for her true identity inside her clay creations. But what is her true, “real” self? For Han it’s ineffable, but she catches glimpses in her work. “I don’t think I’d be able to explain who the real Grace Han is, but when I do my ceramic *work* I don’t have to think about who I am.

Published on Jul 18, 2018
"In Canada there's this kind of racial innocence, this idea that race doesn't matter, we don't see race," says Toronto artist Camille Turner. "But that's not really true." Born in Jamaica, Turner moved to Hamilton when she was nine — a place where she says she experienced "more open bigotry than anywhere else."
