Now What, What Now, is our third year in partnership with the University of Manitoba as part of our 25th anniversary. Showcasing six recent U of M fine art graduates, Now What, What Now, brings together a diverse range of artworks created by the artists during their time studying at the School of Fine Arts. Featuring an array of practices such as VR tour, ceramic, installation, figurative and abstract painting, foraged artworks, printmaking, and other forms of creation. We recognize their dedication throughout their academic pursuit and celebrate their transition into their professional art career.
Initially, many of these works were exhibited for a short period at the School of Art Building on the UofM’s Fort Gary campus. Now What, What Now, unites these artworks once again. The Graffiti Gallery is excited to support these up-and-coming artists as they transition from the institutional context to the wider art world.
Admission is free with donation of a non-perishable food item.
