Changes at WIAprojects!


WIAprojects will be leaving the Centre for Women’s Studies in Education at OISE UT on Dec 31, 2018. The Centre is closing and it is with much regret that our program must leave. We are deeply grateful to the Centre for 14 years of office, storage and exhibition space, research and workshop opportunities, the collegiality of fellow associates, and the extraordinary support of many Centre Heads.

WIAprojects will be continuing to develop projects – in research, publication and exhibition - on an ad hoc basis at different sites across Canada. We will however have an ongoing presence in Toronto thanks to the support of Phil Anderson and Gallery 1313. WIAprojects@1313 will present monthly exhibitions in the gallery courtyard window at Gallery 1313. These exhibitions may be accompanied by courtyard performances.

For 2018 WIA Directors, Leena Raudvee and Pam Patterson will, as co-curators, present a series of 4 window exhibits by artists and designers opening with an ARTIFACTS window, Tiny Homes: Everyone is Downsizing on August 1st. Mary Kainer will be our October exhibitor, Pamela Dodds will be our November window and Berenicci Hershorn will be exhibiting in December.

Starting January 1 2019 to July 2019 WIA Associate Director and curator, Julia Louise Pereira will work with Joyce Jodie Kim and Shirley Shoning as  CARPOS COLLECTIVE  and curate a series of 6 window exhibitions by emerging artists. August 1 will be an anniversary window.  Fall 2019 - Spring 2020, WIA will curate a  a series of work by women-identified and trans disability artists.
