In this one-night-only presentation, four artists explore the multilayered effects of WWII on Japanese in Canada, forming complementary narratives alongside, in, and among The Lost Fleet exhibition, expanding the abstract, metaphysical, and conceptual that is often absent in documented histories. Once Lost invites audiences to experience an immersive journey through The Lost Fleet exhibit.
