SYMPOSIUM

THE WINNIPEG EFFECT:
Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

presented by
The Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art
hosted by
The Winnipeg Art Gallery
November 3-5, 2016


To celebrate its 20th Anniversary, the Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art [CCCA], in partnership with the Winnipeg Art Gallery, has planned a Symposium, The Winnipeg Effect: Should I Stay or Should I Go?, which aims to stimulate a multi-generational discussion within the artistic community, among those who live, landed in, and/or left this city.

Panel participants confirmed to date include: David Churchill, Sigrid Dahle, Ray Fenwick, Suzanne Gillies, Noam Gonick, Robert Houle, Laura Letinsky, Steve Loft, Kegan McFadden Kristin Nelson, Mary Reid, and Diane Whitehouse. The Keynote presentation will be given by Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan.

More detailed information on the Symposium will be coming soon.

The CCCA is currently developing The Winnipeg Effect Project to document the Winnipeg art scene since the 1960s. The project includes a section on the work of leading Winnipeg artists, and an illustrated Winnipeg Art Chronology that lists the art exhibitions and events of Winnipeg arts institutions since 1965. The Winnipeg Effect project will be added to the CCCA Canadian Art Database and will be launched at the Symposium in November.

The CCCA Canadian Art Database http://ccca.concordia.ca is housed at the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art at Concordia University in Montreal.

The CCCA gratefully acknowledges the Winnipeg Foundation for its generous support of the Winnipeg Effect Project, and the generous support of Manitoba Arts Council, and the Winnipeg Arts Council with funding from the City of Winnipeg, for their support of the Winnipeg Effect Symposium.
