WAG visitors at the exhibition opening, 2007. Winnipeg Art Gallery.
On January 26, In the Blink of An Eye opens. For the exhibition, organized by WAG Adjunct Curators Lorri Millan and Shawna Dempsey, 13 Canadian media artists are commissioned to create experimental film and video shorts which are then projected on the front exterior wall of the WAG building, screened at Winnipeg’s Globe Cinema before feature films, and shown on viewing kiosks throughout the Gallery itself. The participants range from nationally acclaimed senior artists like Rebecca Belmore, Richard Fung, and Lisa Steel and Kim Tomczak, to up-and-coming local practitioners such as Daniel Barrow, Divya Mehra, and Collin Zipp.
