Celebrate with Plug In ICA and over 350 gala attendees in the abandoned basement of the Bay for our largest fundraising event of the year on Saturday, October 27, 2018. This year’s gala will be a costumed event and fine dining experience you won’t want to miss! The evening will feature Winnipeg’s top chefs, a showcase of work by 35 leading contemporary artists from Canada and beyond, and a dance floor you won’t be able to resist.

Our annual Gala and Art Auction raises funds in support of Plug In ICA programming, including our Respondent Series, Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth, STAGES Biennale, newly commissioned artwork from contemporary artists, critical publications, youth workshops, engaging events and unparalleled exhibitions. Most importantly your attendance and ongoing support keeps our galleries and events FREE TO ALL.

Strange Illusions sets the theme for this spectacular.  Raise your glass in raising funds for Plug In ICA!
