1) Winter Exhibitions
     Pay By Donation

The Empty Room by Christine Webster
November 26, 2018 - January 14, 2019, Thursday to Monday, 8 am to 4 pm

The Empty Room explores new musical composition and spatialization methods in virtual 3D spaces. The user moves freely through a virtual plateau in the middle of a giant hypercube orbiting over the earth. All around and inside the plateau a genuine 64-channel audio spatializer is combined to create an abstract and ever changing organic visual environment. The Empty Room is a real VR experience – not a 360° film.

Recollect / Retold: Your Stories of New and Old
November 26, 2018 - April 1, 2019, Thursday to Monday, 8 am to 4 pm

NAISA wants to hear your voice – the voice of your children and the voice of your parents and grandparents - to add into the mix of this ongoing exhibition which will be matched with historic photos of South River to tell the story of our community and our place in the Near North.

3) Deep Wireless Transmission Art Exhibitions

anyWare by Jane Tingley
January 17 to April 1, 2019, Thursday to Monday, 8 am to 4 pm
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Avenue, South River
Pay By Donation

anyWare is an Internet of Things distributed sculpture comprised of three identical objects that are individually connected to the Internet and physically mirror each other. The anyWare sculptures are art objects that telematically connect different locations in the world and enable distal physical communication. The objects simultaneously respond to people who interact directly with them, as well as allow them to interact with each other through the sculptures. Structuring these interactions are a number of games and puzzles for people to play/solve, either individually or collaboratively. The objects transform in the experience of exploration (either with one person or potentially with many people) and in so doing reveal different levels of interactivity and aesthetic experience.

NAISARadio Café
January 17 to April 1, 2019, Thursday to Monday, 8 am to 4 pm
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Avenue, South River
Pay By Donation

Journey in your mind to a place ‘off the beaten track’ and explore an eclectic range of radio and sound art from around the world while sitting at one of NAISA’s Café tables. NAISARadio Café is a curated listening experience delivered through radio receivers on café tables. The broadcast will consist of works made by artists from Asia, Europe, the middle East, and across Canada who have responded to NAISA's 2019 programming theme of Off the Beat(en) Track. The collection will also be available to NAISA's out of town followers through online listening on NAISA's 24/7 radio art stream NAISA Radio and on NAISA's Soundcloud album collection called Deep Wireless 14.

4) Art’s Birthday celebrations open Deep Wireless Festival
     January 17 - 20, 2019
     NAISA North Media Arts Centre
     106 Ottawa Avenue, South River, ON

Art’s Birthday is an international exchange-art event on or around January 17th to celebrate the birth of Art. The idea was proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. It has since been celebrated on January 17 by artists and arts organizations around the world. Visit to read about past editions.

January 17
On January 17th, special guest artist Jane Tingley will launch her exhibition of anyWare, a networked media sculpture with a special performance version for Euroradio Satellite network that includes audience participation at NAISA and a remote performer at an Art's Birthday party somewhere else in the world.

January 19
Join us on Saturday January 19th from 10am - 4pm, for a chance for the entire family to experience and create Art. Kids of all ages can try out many fun and exciting art-making activities, including interacting with the anyWare sculpture, and yes, there will be cake to celebrate Art’s 1,000,056th birthday.

Jan 18 - 20
For those that wish to dive deeper into learning about interactive electronics, Jane Tingley will lead a workshop intensive on January 18 to 20 where participants will learn to build interactive touch board interfaces and use them to activate winter sound recordings made at Warbler's Roost with NAISA Artistic Director Darren Copeland.
