Silence is Violence #WinnipegAgainstFascism - a community conversation and support event, hosted by Black Space Winnipeg.

This past weekend caused uproar and civil turmoil in Charlottesville, Virginia. Since then, white nationalists, and neo-nazi supremacists have been declaring their rage across the US and in Canada. These recent actions come as no surprise for marginalized people. 

Support systems have been initiated across Winnipeg. We invite the public to come, share concerns, and suggestions for moving forward as a community. We ask folks coming to this event to show empathy, bring food and create support. We ask allies to the BIPOC community please come for 7:00 pm to ensure safe space for all participants. This is time for self care. This is time for education. For more information: blackspacewpg@gmail.com

Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe. - Frederick Douglass

In this year of Canada's 150th birthday, Winnipeg's Polish Folk Dance Ensemble SPK "ISKRY" will be celebrating their Golden Anniversary - 50 years of performing for audiences all around the world. Since its founding in 1967 by Henryk Lorenc, its primary purpose is to preserve and showcase Polish culture and folklore through traditional song and dance.

We invited Edmonton's Polish Dance Ensemble "Lowicz" as guest performers. The performance will showcase both new works and classics that weave together the rich fabric of the Polish culture.

In addition to regularly performing at the International Polish Dance Festival since 1993, "ISKRY" has been the annual entertainment mainstay at the Warsaw-Poland Pavilion during Winnipeg's Folklorama. Some other highlights of their history include performing at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, attending a private audience with Pope John Paul II in 1999, and joining the Winnipeg Royal Ballet in 2015 in their production of Swan Lake.

Please contact any current dancer of "ISKRY" or a member of the alumni to purchase one.

Forth, 171 McDermot Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 0S1
Free Admission /  Beer and unlimited popcorn for $5.

In Jacques Tati’s Traffic, the bumbling Monsieur Hulot, kitted out as always with tan raincoat, beaten brown hat, and umbrella, takes to Paris’s highways and byways. In this, his final outing, Hulot is employed as an auto company’s director of design, and accompanies his new product (a “camping car” outfitted with absurd gadgetry) to an auto show in Amsterdam. Naturally, the road there is paved with modern-age mishaps. This late-career delight is a masterful demonstration of the comic genius’s expert timing and sidesplitting knack for visual gags, and a bemused last look at technology run amok.
The film is screened by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, in partnership with Forth.

Broadway Modern Architectural tour 
Meet in front of Manitoba Club, Broadway and Main Street

This free, 90 minute tour focuses on the post-1945 development of the area as a premier business district and the collection of modernist architecture designed by some of Winnipeg’s most notable firms.
Broadway between Main Street and Osborne Street has long been an address of prestige, book-ended by two dominant, significant works of architecture – Union Station to the east and the Manitoba Legislative Building to the west. 
The early history of the avenue was as a desirable residential neighbourhood, with little commercial activity. A building boom in the late 1950s to early 1970s, however, was responsible for the development of the Broadway as we know it.
All surfaces will be wheelchair and stroller accessible. Free and no registration is required.

Exhibition Program - Call for submissions 2017
aceartinc. exhibits 5 major exhibitions a year by contemporary visual artists and we welcome submissions from all emerging contemporary artists and curators in any media.

The gallery also runs several ongoing projects and hosts numerous one-offs; we are the proud home of Flux Gallery and the Cartae Open School. This Artist Run Centre is passionate about the work being produced by contemporary artists and arts writers and critics in Canada and abroad. Many Canadian artists have shown work at ace early in their careers. We are an established (but not establishment) part of the unique ecosystem of Canadian contemporary art.

Selections for the Regular Program are made by a jury consisting of Winnipeg-based artists/curators/critics, ace staff and board. The ace jury reviews submissions within the context of aceartinc.’s mandate and goals and our available resources. aceartinc. will pay CARFAC exhibition fees to artists; travel and accommodation, one-way shipping and per-diems will also be provided. A writer is commissioned to write a response to the Regular Exhibitions via the Critical Distance writing program, which is published online and anthologised in PaperWait. We professionally document each show.

aceartinc. is dedicated to diversity in its programming and to this end encourages applications from all contemporary artists and curators, groups and collectives in all visual arts media. But we only have the chance to exhibit you if you apply. Please apply.
