The Embassy of Canada is pleased to present a contemporary art exhibition featuring artworks by Japanese Canadian artist Randall Okita. 

A Place Between: Pushing the conventions of performance, sculpture, filmmaking and digital media, Okita’s work is recognized for its innovation and intricacy, and its balance between rich aesthetics and difficult subject matter. Meditations on violence, conflict and reconciliation are present throughout Okita’s work. His works from recent years show his consideration of these themes in personal and family histories, looking at points of separation and a desire for connection.

Okita is an award-winning Canadian artist and filmmaker whose work encompasses sculpture, physically challenging performances and stunt-work, and rich cinematography. His work has been shown in both group and solo exhibitions, awarded internationally, and screened at festivals around the world, including retrospective screenings of his short film catalogue in San Francisco and Toronto. 

Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Okita has lived and worked in Japan, Vancouver and Toronto.
