IKI: Breath brings together works by Japanese Canadian Sansei artists Lillian Michiko Blakey (Newmarket) and Bryce Kanbara (Hamilton). This exhibition gives insight into Japanese Canadian history while embracing Canada's goal towards a welcoming multicultural society. The exhibit emphasizes a desire for Canadians to be culturally responsible, adaptable, and inclusive. It represents both artists' shared passion for education, community, collaboration, and building foundations of acceptance and belonging for everyone in our society.

*Guided Art Tours available by appointment for Groups and Schools. Fees apply. To inquire, contact Logan Bales at or phone: 905 953 5313 EXT. 2845
