S T A G E S as an exhibition, sets out to activate the city of Winnipeg with temporary public sculpture and performances by international and local artists. Initiated in 2017 with STAGES: Drawing the Curtain, the 2019 exhibition will again span the city of Winnipeg but with a further reach, engaging abandoned industrial sites, apartment buildings, parks, and other public sites, commissioning 6 new works as well as remounting an historic artwork first presented in the Winnipeg Apartments in Toronto.  Many of the works are still in the research phase so more information is forth-coming.

Please join our email list to find out about the STAGES Speaker Series. We have already hosted talks by Raymond Boisjoly and Joar Nango (soon to be online). Our next talk will be by Daniel Buren on April 9th, 2019; with Silke Otto-Knapp , Andrea Roberts and Kenneth Lavallee speaking in the late spring.

With respect for First Nations and Métis ancestors, we acknowledge that STAGES will be presented on Treaty One Territory, the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Dakota, Métis and Oji-Cree Nations and the passing ground of the Dene Peoples. The land and our acknowledgment of its history considers the Indigenous history of this land – its disruption through colonialism, the impacts and actions, which remain a battle today.
