There's More Than One Way acts as an overview of collective art practices in Winnipeg. Through a mix of artwork, documentation, and ephemera, this exhibition shows the various approaches to art making beyond the singular artist. Divided into identifiable camps: those who come together to produce a work under a singular entity (General Idea), those collectives comprised of individual artists to get together to get stuff done (Average Good Looks, The Ephemerals), those who banded together, briefly, to make just one piece before going their separate ways (Fish Brides Collective, Who Are the 500), and finally those who just love(d) making work together (Royal Art Lodge, The Abzurbs, Places for Peanuts) this show casts a wide net with the hopes of pointing to various approaches to the question of collective art making in Winnipeg over the last fifty years.
