About the Exhibition

Coming to Terms is an exhibition of seven international interdisciplinary artists working within the intersection of translation studies and artistic practice. The exhibition sprawls through the halls and offices of the Jackman Humanities Institute, and is structured around three overlapping themes: hegemonic anglophonization and its effects; deconstructionist translation; and intersemiotic translation. Employing a myriad of divergent mediums including video, vinyl text, commercial signage, chalk diagrams, and embroidered silk, the artists in Coming to Terms survey the concessions and accessions made when meaning is exchanged across disciplinary, cultural, linguistic and material borders.
