WALKING PHOENIX

SEP 30 – NOV 6, 2016


ANNOUNCEMENT

After four and a half years of operating a gallery, shop, and studio, the directors of AVALANCHE! Institute of Contemporary Art are both saddened and excited to announce that we are closing our gallery space, shifting away from an ongoing program of exhibitions toward a more flexible platform in order to focus our efforts on other projects. While we plan to maintain our online shop and intermittently program an ongoing series of special projects, we will no longer occupy a permanent exhibition venue.

Since 2012, AVALANCHE! ICA has exhibited the work of more than 40 artists from across Canada, developed numerous artist multiples, limited edition prints, and publications, and presented several performances and lectures by artists. We appreciate your support throughout this time and hope you will join us in celebrating as we move on to the next chapter.
