Behind Closed Doors reveals what is rarely seen by the public—the artist’s process in their studio and their research from the museum vault—featuring artists from Winnipeg. Featuring artwork by: Ian August, Irene Bindi, Mia Feuer, Takashi Iwasaki, Shaun Morin & Melanie Rocan, Kristin Nelson, Matea Radic, Dominique Rey, and Robert Taite. Curated by Jaimie L. Isaac.

Mary Yuusipik Singaqti: Back River Memories recalls Inuit life on the land through drawings, wall-hangings, and carvings. Curated by Dr. Darlene Coward Wight.

Robert Archambeau: A Conversation in Clay presents a harmony of colours, textures, and glazes created by the celebrated artist. Curated by Dr. Stephen Borys.

Nivinngajuliaat from Baker Lake shares stories through large-scale wall-hangings from the community that defined this unique art form. Guest curated by Krista Zawadski.

Morrisseau: Androgyny showcases a monumental painting by the influential Anishinaabe artist on loan from the Collection of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada.
