Winnipeg Art Gallery, Winnipeg Reviews
I really enjoyed the Winnipeg Art Gallery during my visit in early January, 2018. For me, the most moving experience was walking into the Academic Tradition from Europe and Canada 1600-1900 room on the 3rd floor. As I entered, I felt an overwhelmingly eerie sense of chills run down my spine. The settler-style art lined up around the walls, and the Indigenous art in a row along the middle, surrounded by (or caged in by) glass casings. It also felt reminiscent of colonization and my hopes for contemporary reconciliation. Overall, my favourite part was, of course, the massive collection of Indigenous art from various nations across the country. Next to this, The Vessel exhibit by David Altmejd, was definitely one of the most powerful exhibits worth taking in. I thought it representative of the contemporary world and the mind of man: vast, expansive and confusing, ridden with synthetic material. Defiantly worth checking out!
I visited the gift shop. I can't say enough about the staff. friendly, helpful & down to earth. excellent selections. great place to buy a one of a kind for you or as a gift!
It's a decently large art gallery, and the collection itself is quite big so the displays change frequently. They host a lot of interesting events too. There's a restaurant on the top floor which can be booked for special occasions as can the main hall on the first.
At a formal function, the meal was well-prepared, tasty, and served hot. There was plenty of staff so the pacing of the multiple courses was perfect, with the previous course cleared smartly. The venue was attractive and clean, with very nice decor (hey it's an art gallery after all!). Recommend WAG for a semi-formal or formal function.
Very nice permanent classical exposition with oil paintings up to 500 years old: real magic is to look at them closer. Huge space for temporary excibitions which are pretty innovative and progressive.
