Gallery 1C03 is proud to celebrate its 30th anniversary and The University of Winnipeg’s 50th anniversary with a special group exhibition called Moving Images.

It will feature 23 short film and video works by artists and artist collectives who have had an affiliation with the University: alumni, current and former students and faculty/instructors. Five thematic shorts programs will be screened in the Gallery, each program only on view for one week, thereby encouraging repeat visits.
