About Close Encounters: The Next 500 Years
Close Encounters was a banner project for Winnipeg Cultural Capital of Canada 2010 Program, comprised of a large-scale exhibition focused on presenting Indigenous art from around the world. This was an incredibly important show, featuring the work of a number of renowned Canadian Indigenous artists, complemented by some of the most innovative and engaging work drawn from Indigenous populations across the globe.
Organized by Plug In ICA and crafted by four Aboriginal curators, this show engaged the whole city, with four major venues featuring work, and many galleries programming parallel shows and events to compliment the main exhibition.
