WHAT WE DO
We support the creation and development of new, existing and site-specific art exhibitions in Canada and across the globe.
We offer two sides of curatorial practice: creative development and research of a curatorial project; and project management, exhibition design, communication and handling curatorial procedures.
We provide curatorial framework development, installation assistance, insurance advice, documentation, and commissioned critical essays to accompany projects and exhibitions.
