Into the Light: Eugenics and Education in Southern Ontario

This exhibition reveals the challenging and difficult history of eugenics in Guelph. Eugenics is the race-based "betterment" of humankind, a movement that aimed to "improve" the human race. Yet, it created a legacy of segregation, cultural assimilation, and sterilization that continues today.

Into the Light is an exhibition of artistic, sensory, and material expressions of memory aims to bring one of Guelph’s dark secrets, as well as stories of survival, out of the shadows and into the light. Co-curated by Mona Stonefish, Peter Park, Dolleen Tisawii’ashii Manning, Evadne Kelly, Seika Boye and Sky Stonefish.

Presented in partnership with Bodies in Translation, Re•Vision: The Centre for Art and Social Justice, University of Guelph and Respecting Rights, Arch Disability Law.
