Event Description

Canada’s prestigious Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts is a lifetime achievement award recognizing an artist’s career, body of work and contribution to the visual arts, media arts and fine craft in Canada. In 2021, eight artists were celebrated in recognition of their exceptional careers and remarkable contributions to the visual arts, media arts and fine craft. The 2021 winners were: Lou Lynn, Dempsey Bob, Bonnie Devine, Luc Courchesne, Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Bryce Kanbara, Lori Blondeau and Germaine Arnaktauyok.

This exhibition, presented by the AGGV in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts, presents the work of the 2021 award recipients. It is a rare opportunity to see the work of these artists, who live in all parts of Canada, together in one location. The AGGV is honoured to have been selected by the Canada Council for the Arts to curate and host the 2021 exhibition.

The Governor General’s Awards were created in 1999 by the Canada Council and the Governor General of Canada to celebrate Canada’s vibrant arts community and recognize remarkable careers in the visual and media arts. Over the last two decades, a total of 170 contemporary artists and arts professionals have been honoured.

The Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts 2021 exhibition is organized by the AGGV and curated by Jaimie Isaac, with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
