The year 2020-2021 culminated in the opening of Qaumajuq, the Inuit art centre. Together, we’ve created a new museum—a place for us to meet and share, learn and discover, and a way to connect with each other through art. Review this and more highlights of one of the biggest years in WAG history.

In a year like no other, the WAG and now Qaumajuq, the Inuit art centre, connected with our community in new, meaningful ways. We worked to ensure that your art collection is accessible, be it in person or online, during the pandemic. And we’ve seen an amazing response as we hosted a virtual celebration for Qaumajuq and opened its doors for the first time!

Thanks to an incredible community of donors, businesses, governments, volunteers, members, and staff, we’ve created a new museum—a place for all people to meet and share, a centre for learning and discovery, and a way to come together with each other through art.

On this journey we’ve declared loudly that art is a voice. It shapes our experiences; it opens our hearts and minds to new ideas. It forms and shifts our perspectives. Art heals and inspires, and it fuels understanding. Qaumajuq is a welcome to all of these possibilities: it is bright, it is lit. Thank you for making Qaumajuq a reality.

You are fuelling our ongoing efforts to ensure everyone knows they belong here. With your support, this year saw so many major advances despite the pandemic, from the opening of the Born in Power show that responds to Black and Indigenous solidarity and representation in galleries, to the launch of INUA, Qaumajuq’s groundbreaking inaugural exhibition, and from a rooftop retreat giving safe space to gather during the lockdown and lifting up community partners affected by the pandemic, to expanded virtual programs that benefited thousands of students, teachers, parents, and the public at large.

I am grateful for your dedication and support as we ensure the WAG remains an inspiring and accessible place for our diverse community through the inaugural year, #Qaumajuq365, and beyond.

The stories below are highlights from the 2020-21 fiscal year. I hope you enjoy reflecting on these moments in history, and know that none of this would be possible without you—our supporters and friends.

Stephen D. Borys, OM, PhD, MBA
Director & CEO

WAG - Winnipeg Art Gallery

Celebrating the Opening of Qaumajuq

At the end of March 2021, Qaumajuq (the Inuit art centre) opened virtually to Manitobans and audiences around the globe.

While we couldn’t gather in person due to the pandemic, amazing supporters like you made it possible to share in the excitement from anywhere, and to open Qaumajuq’s doors for its first visitors.


Year in review

Plan Your Visit
WAG-Qaumajuq recognizes that land acknowledgements are part of an ongoing dialogue with Indigenous Nations, and we are grateful to live and work on these lands and waters. Institutionally, WAG-Qaumajuq is committed to acknowledging our colonial history and we are actively working to interrogate the Gallery’s colonial ways of being.

WAG-Qaumajuq is LEED certified.
