Visual work in the Plug In ICA Gala - November 19th!

Freya Björg Olafson | Contortion Date | 2010, signed 2016 | graphite on paper | 8.5 x 11 in

Contortion Date is a graphite work by Winnipeg-based intermedia artist Freya Olafson, which places a spatially decontextualized, contorted female figure that gazes back at the viewer. Offering a pleasant discomfort where minimal lines meet maximal effort.


Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art invites you to our


Saturday, November 19th


Delta Hotel Ballroom

350 St. Mary Avenue, Winnipeg, Canada

Alternative and fun, Plug In’s Gala is a blast! We’ve designed a social and festive atmosphere that moves beyond the traditional sit-down fundraising gala. Instead we encourage mingling by having 12 diverse and specialized local restaurants set up unique food-stations featuring selected delectable dishes which will be paired with specially selected wines. The main event of the evening is our silent auction, showcasing the best of contemporary art by local and internationally renowned artists.

The gala will present a site-specific installation created by our featured artist Steven Leyden Cochrane and a generous silent art auction including the work of 37 celebrated artists including must have artworks by: Karen Asher, Ian August, Kim Beom, Irene Bindi, Eleanor Bond, Paul Butler, Mark Clintberg, Aston Coles, Hannah Doucet, Aleksandra Domanovic, Marcel Dzama, Erica Eyres, Geoffrey Farmer, Ray Fenwick, Natalie Ferguson, Thom Fougere, Instant Coffee, Sarah Anne Johnson, Gilles Hébert, Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline, Angie Keefer, Duane Linklater, Kelly Lycan, Kelly Mark, Sylvia Matas, Bernie Miller, Kristin Nelson, Mark Neufeld, Freya Olafson, John Patterson, Przemek Pyszczek, Dominque Rey, Andrea Roberts, Paul Robles, Jeremy Shaw, Rachael Thorleifson, and Rhayne Vermette.
