"Crossing Lines, Building Bridges" is a catalogue essay introducing Crossing Lines: an Intercultural Dialogue, an exhibition curated by Srimoyee Mitra, which is located at the Glenhyrst Art Gallery in Brantford.

Notions of discrimination and colonization are explored within the exhibition as each artwork is based on experiences of loss and displacement.
