Join us at the Summer Gallery Opening Party to celebrate the opening of three new exhibitions: Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art, Human Capital, and Conversation Pieces.

Organized and circulated by McMichael Canadian Art Collection and curated by Sarah Milroy, Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art is one of Canada’s most impressive private collections. It braids together works by early European newcomers, titans of Canadian 20th century art, a rich display by the Québec Impressionists and Les Automatistes, as well as trailblazing artists of today, including contemporary Indigenous artists.

Organized and circulated by MacKenzie Art Gallery, Human Capital presents work that offers insight into the impact of Canada’s immigration policies and history: how it treats humans as capital, and the role it plays in shaping the complex and contested formation of a “Canadian identity”.

From Confederation Centre Art Gallery’s permanent collection, Conversation Pieces is a selection of works in and about dialogue. This exhibition has been curated by Pan Wendt.

Curator Sarah Milroy and Head of Exhibitions and Publications Jennifer Withrow from McMichael Canadian Art Collection, as well as Associate Curator Tak Pham from MacKenzie Art Gallery will be attending.

Arrive early as attendance is limited.

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.
