Abedar Kamgari is a visual art and media artist based in Hamilton Ontario. Her exhibition at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Abedar Kamgari: The Journey West, is a durational performance-for-video and creative retelling of Abedar’s experience as a refugee and immigrant, enacted on the thirteenth anniversary of her initial departure. Walking the 87-kilometre distance from Toronto to Hamilton, traversing the land between her two adopted hometowns, Abedar invokes memories of this formative passage. She will talk on this work and other aspects of her creative practice.
