7:00pm – 9:00pm

Celebrate the opening of Headlines: The Art of the News Cycle, honouring the historic 150th anniversary of the Winnipeg Free Press.

Hear from Paul Samyn, editor of the Winnipeg Free Press, plus words from WAG-Qaumajuq Director & CEO Dr. Stephen Borys, and Dr. Riva Symko, Head of Collections & Exhibitions and Curator of Canadian Art at WAG-Qaumajuq.

For the remainder of the evening, we invite you to enjoy music from DJ M.C. LUV, cash bars and explore the exhibition for free!

For 150 years, the Winnipeg Free Press has remained a staunchly independent news source and now, in celebration of this historic anniversary, Headlines: The Art of the News Cycle, explores the news and how we consume it.

While the show is inspired by the 150th anniversary of the Winnipeg Free Press, the exhibition casts a wider net. “Rather than starting with the history of the Free Press, I started with the idea of news itself, news media in the 21st century, right now – and what are artists thinking about in relation to this?” says Symko. “I looked to artists first.”
