Happenings 8: Contemporary Craft

Monday, April 24, 2017 from 6-9pm
Mezzanine Level of Centre Court above Ca' Puccini

This isn’t your grandmother’s craft party! The current exhibiting artists push the boundaries of what craft can by using concepts that question social and political concerns. These artist receptions and art parties are designed for you to self-curate your own art experience. Happenings is a FREE event open to the public so bring your friends! And, Happenings #8 is a party that you won’t want to miss!

***FREE SCREENING***

Happenings 8 will also feature a screening of the Jazz Loft According To W. Eugene Smith in the Hub (located on the +15 level of Arts Commons outside Jack Singer Concert Hall) at 7pm as part of International Jazz Day. Admission to the film is free on a first come, first served basis.

John Charles Reid from the Canadian Music Centre will be hosting a talk back after the show.

During Happenings 8, we are celebrating the following exhibitions in the Arts Commons galleries:

The Ledge Gallery: Eveline Kolijn

Window Galleries: Dayna Ellen, Felicity Hart, Jocelyn Reid, Violet Costello

Broadcast Lab (formerly Gallery of Alberta Media Arts): Mary-Anne McTrowe, The Bum Family, Rosanna Terracciano

Lightbox Studio: Chelsea Ruston

+15 Soundscape: Aidan Lytton
