A new contemporary exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery is taking the public behind the scenes and into the artist’s creative process.

Behind Closed Doors will give a rare glimpse into the art studio and an artist’s research from the museum vault.

“I want to expose the enchantment of a studio visit. A lot of these artists first sketch, then watercolour, then transform the work’s materiality and form through sculpture and installation,” said Jaimie Isaac, WAG curator of Indigenous & Contemporary Art.

“In Behind Closed Doors, the audience can actually see that transformation and see the process unfolding.”

The exhibition brings together work from 10 artists based in Winnipeg or with Winnipeg roots, and includes sculpture, collage, painting, drawing, photography, animation, and sound-based work.

The exhibit runs December 1 to spring 2019.
