In cel­e­bra­tion and remem­brance of a beloved mem­ber of the Win­nipeg arts com­mu­ni­ty, the Win­nipeg Art Gallery (WAG)-Qaumajuq is host­ing a free com­mu­ni­ty pro­gram to hon­our the life and work of Cliff Eyland, an evening pre­sent­ed in con­junc­tion with the exhi­bi­tion Cliff Eyland: Library of Babel – A Retrospective. 

Cliff Eyland was an artist, writer, edu­ca­tor, and cura­tor. In his art prac­tice he is known for his pro­lif­ic out­put and com­mit­ment to the 3×5” file card for­mat inspired by library card cat­a­logues. Cliff’s influ­ence extend­ed through­out the Win­nipeg art com­mu­ni­ty through his work as direc­tor with Gallery One One One (now known as the Uni­ver­si­ty of Man­i­to­ba School of Art Gallery) and his teach­ing at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Man­i­to­ba. His most pub­lic works are library com­mis­sions installed in Hal­i­fax, Edmon­ton, and local­ly here in Win­nipeg at the Mil­len­ni­um Library, where his 3×5” file card for­mat paint­ings are on dis­play at the library entrance. 

This spe­cial event will fea­ture a clip from Adam Brooks’ doc­u­men­tary film, Cliff: A Por­trait of an Artist, fol­lowed by remarks by Dr. Stephen Borys, guest cura­tor Robert B. Epp, and Cliff Eyland’s wife, Dr. Pam Perkins. Fol­low­ing the pro­gram, guests are invit­ed to enjoy the exhi­bi­tion and cash bar. 

The free event will take place Fri­day, April 29, 2022, at 7:00pm. For more infor­ma­tion, please vis­it our web­site.
