The Winnipeg Effect Project
The Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art celebrated its 20th Anniversary with a Symposium entitled: "The Winnipeg Effect: Should I Stay or Should I Go?", hosted by The Winnipeg Art Gallery, November 3-5, 2016.
The Symposium served as the culmination of the Winnipeg Effect Project, a broad initiative by the CCCA to document the Winnipeg art scene over the 50-year period from 1967-2017, with the goal of increasing knowledge about Winnipeg art institutions, artists and art writers, and to examine the effect that Winnipeg's art scene has had on the art scene across Canada.
The Centre for Contemporary Canadian Art gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Winnipeg Effect Symposium by The Winnipeg Foundation, The Winnipeg Foundation Triple A Fund, The Manitoba Arts Council, The Winnipeg Arts Council, The Winnipeg Art Gallery, Rinella Printers, Border Crossings Magazine and the School of Art, Univerity of Manitoba.
