A Brandon University artist is attracting media attention for an exhibit in Winnipeg that was inspired by his Japanese-Swiss roots.

“Alleys, Records, Parents” is being exhibited at Lantern Gallery by Kevin DeForest, an Assistant Professor in Aboriginal and Visual Art at BU.

In an interview in French with Radio-Canada, DeForest said that it was important to create a artistic representation of Eurasian culture. “We don’t speak very often of this identity,” he said in French.

The exhibit runs Dec. 4, 2015, through Jan. 15, 2016 at Lantern.
