Plug In ICA presents the Summer Institute’s Open Studio. Please join us Saturday, July 27th between 12pm and 5pm to see the work-in-progress produced by this year’s artist participants. This event is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

The Summer Institute is an international post-graduate artist residency for professional artists working in all disciplines. This is the fifth annual Summer Institute at Plug In ICA, and the third in Plug In’s new purpose-built facilities. This four-week intensive studio program is led by faculty members, professor and curator Oliver Botar (Winnipeg, MB), and mixed-media artist Ken Gregory (Winnipeg, MB). Thirteen multi-disciplinary artists working in mediums that include sculpture, new media, video, dance, performance, sound, painting and installation have been sharing a collegial, open-studio environment designed to instigate collaborative or independent projects with support and feedback from faculty, visiting artists Roy Ascott, Eduardo Kac and Wayne Baerwaldt, and Plug In ICA staff.
