Hank Bull

Born in Calgary, Hank Bull has been associated with the Western Front since 1973. The “HP Radio Show,” with Patrick Ready, first aired in 1976 on CFRO-FM. With “Canada Shadows,” he performed multi-media shadow plays across Canada and Europe. Participation in artist telecommunication networks began in the late 1970s, using Slowscan, electronic text  and fax. Throughout the 80s and 90s, Hank organized projects with artists in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. As curator and advocate, he contributed to the growth of artist-run culture across Canada and Québec. These practices informed the co-creation of Centre A, the Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, in 1999. He currently works between painting, music, performance, video and sound.
