Arts Commons Presents
Happenings 10: Body Politics
Monday, November 27, 2017 from 6-9pm
HAPPENINGS 10 at Arts Commons is an experimental art party filled with new exhibitions, installations, live performances, and musical projects in celebration of our current visual art exhibitors. For this Happenings, our theme is “Body Politics” to inspire conversation about how it is more important than ever to create space for compassion and tolerance in our society.
This Happenings, we are bringing the event back to its roots! We will be transforming the Engineered Air Theatre and other secret spaces of Arts Commons for some unexpected collisions of artistic expression and creative projects. Get ready, for Arts Commons will be filled to the brim with art!
Happenings is a FREE event open to the public – everyone is welcome! This is a party you won’t want to miss!
We are celebrating the following exhibitions in the Arts Commons galleries:
The Ledge Gallery: Khrysta Lloren, and Nine Kennedy, Window Galleries: Chloe Kinsella, Haley Craw, Natalie Lauchlan, and Pamela Norrish, Broadcast Lab (formerly Gallery of Alberta Media Arts): BabyGurl$, Adam Bentley, and Biance Hlywa, Lightbox Studio: May G N, Dick Averns, and +15 Soundscape: Shawn Pinchbeck
