Aftereffects: Emerging New Media Artists in Winnipeg

This exhibition presents the work of nine Winnipeg-based emerging artists who work in film, video, audio, and other digital mediums. Supported by the RBC Emerging Artists Program, the exhibition explores the cultural scene in Winnipeg through a close look at what up-and-coming artists are producing there.

“Winnipeg has always had a great art scene, especially for a city with under a million people,” says curator Pan Wendt. “Studio space is more abundant than in most Canadian cities, and artists seem to react to the brutal weather by hunkering down and working on their projects. It’s also distinctive culturally in that nearly a quarter of the population is Indigenous.

The exhibition gives a glimpse into the future of Winnipeg art by focusing on a group of promising emerging artists working with technology. It captures the diversity of Winnipeg, but also reveals some distinctive recurring interests and obsessions, including the repurposing of outmoded mediums, the collision of past, present and future, the fragility of information and the discovery of promise in ruin and decay.

The artists featured in the exhibition include: Kristina Banera, Kelsey Braun, Meganelizabeth Diamond, Ray Fenwick, Dallas Flett-Wapash, Taylor McArthur, Hanna Reimer, Colby Richardson, and Chukwudubem Ukaigwe.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
