Findings – Candace Lipischak – Exhibition

 

Candace Lipischak
February 4th – March 6th, 2020

CCFM Art Gallery 
340 Provencher blvd, Winnipeg

Findings: Art as an object of socio-cultural and environmental reflection

Inspired by her Métis heritage, Candace develops a rebellious, raw art based on the “upcycling” of abandoned antiques dating back to the early 1900s. The elements that make up her works are finds from her property in Otterburne, to which the artist offers a second life. The works question our views of Manitoba’s human history and provide food for thought on the ecological issues facing current and future generations.

Celebrating Manitoba’s 150th Anniversary and Addressing Indigenous Issues

Candace Lipischak’s “Findings” exhibition celebrates the 150th anniversary of the province of Manitoba while addressing current indigenous issues.

Opening night

Tuesday, February 4th | 6 pm
