The Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre launches a new exhibit
Contemporary Canadian artist Kellen Hatanaka
October 26, 2021 – April 30, 2022

Through the lens of the historic Vancouver Asahi baseball team,
contemporary Canadian artist Kellen Hatanaka explores issues of race,
xenophobia, representation, and implicit bias that are relevant in both
sport and society today. Interpreted in contemporary painting, and
sculpture, all primarily working with paper, his visual stories offer both
warning and help to erase thinking and behaviours that continue to exclude
minority groups. Hatenaka re-imagines the influence and importance of the
Vancouver Asahi through yonsei (4th generation) eyes.

Adjacent to this contemporary installation is a heritage corner drawing on
the NNMCC archives to round out the historical story of the Vancouver Asahi.
