September 18, — March 8, This exhibition demonstrated how historical events shape our daily lives and have lasting impacts. It included features that engaged families, including an activity station for kids and adults alike, and the opportunity to virtually try on period garments. In Vancouver was a burgeoning, multicultural port city and a hub for migrants searching for new opportunities. On the cusp of the Great War, Vancouver waged its own internal battle to determine what type of city it wanted to be. A flashpoint was the arrival of the Komagata Maru — a steamship carrying British Indian passengers who were denied entry into Canada.
This modest-sized exhibition — guest curated by Naveen Girn — examines the enduring impact that this dramatic event had on Vancouver. Stories, rare artefacts, images and documents provide new insights into how national policies and racial bias shaped the lives of Komagata Maru passengers and South Asian immigrants.

The MOV is pleased to present the first time solo exhibition of internationally acclaimed Vancouver-born artist Tobias Wong. He was cheeky, playful, witty, and clever.
