Behind Closed Doors reveals what is rarely seen by the public—the artist’s process in their studio and their research from the museum vault—featuring artists from Winnipeg. Curated by Jaimie Isaac.
Mary Yuusipik Singaqti: Back River Memories recalls Inuit life on the land through drawings, wall-hangings, and carvings. Curated by Dr. Darlene Coward Wight.
Robert Archambeau: A Conversation in Clay presents a harmony of colours, textures, and glazes created by the celebrated artist. Curated by Dr. Stephen Borys.
Nivinngajuliaat from Baker Lake shares stories through large-scale wall-hangings from the community that defined this unique art form. Guest curated by Krista Ulujuk Zawadski.
Morrisseau: Androgyny showcases a monumental painting by the influential Anishinaabe artist on loan from the Collection of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada.
