The AGH is thrilled that Bryce Kanbara has been awarded a 2021 Governor General’s Award for Outstanding Contribution in Visual and Media Arts. It recognizes the importance of the constant, community-driven, highly collaborative work Kanbara has contributed for over 5 decades, a good majority of which has had significant impact on the city of Hamilton.
Join us for this informal look back on some of the significant projects that have defined Kanbara’s career as visual artist, curator, and community arts activist.
