Winnipeg Architecture Foundation Events

Children’s Tours      
Tours run Saturdays at 11 a.m. in July and August
Cost: $10 per child, includes activity book (parents/chaperones are free!)

Winnipeg Architecture Foundation has developed a special activity tour for children ages 5 to 12 to explore the Exchange District. 
Take your little ones on an adventure through the historic Exchange District! EXchange Marks the Spot will take you on a journey back to Winnipeg’s boom period, exploring old theatres and towering bank buildings. Together with a trusty activity book, children will get the chance to think inquisitively and creatively about the neighbourhood.

Trend House Exhibit
Winnipeg Architecture Foundation, 266 McDermot Avenue

The Trend House exhibition showcases archival material on the Canadian Trend Houses including the Winnipeg home designed by Walter Katelnikoff. The houses were designed as part of an initiative by Western Woods to increase the market for their wood products by showcasing their products in contemporary, newly built, and affordable homes which were open to the public for viewing in 1954.
August 2 at 7 PM - 8:30 PM
Register for the tour / Free Admission
Trend House Tour, with the permission and contribution by the house's owner, Gordon Katelnikoff. His father architect Walter Katelnikoff designed the house. Please respect the privacy of adjoining neighbours. You are encourage to use public transit, cycle or walk to the location.
August 16, 7 pm
Broadway Modern Architectural tour 
Meet in front of Manitoba Club, Broadway and Main Street

This free, 90 minute tour focuses on the post-1945 development of the area as a premier business district and the collection of modernist architecture designed by some of Winnipeg’s most notable firms.
Broadway between Main Street and Osborne Street has long been an address of prestige, book-ended by two dominant, significant works of architecture – Union Station to the east and the Manitoba Legislative Building to the west. 
The early history of the avenue was as a desirable residential neighbourhood, with little commercial activity. A building boom in the late 1950s to early 1970s, however, was responsible for the development of the Broadway as we know it.
All surfaces will be wheelchair and stroller accessible. Free and no registration is required.

Exhibition Program - Call for submissions 2017
aceartinc. exhibits 5 major exhibitions a year by contemporary visual artists and we welcome submissions from all emerging contemporary artists and curators in any media.

The gallery also runs several ongoing projects and hosts numerous one-offs; we are the proud home of Flux Gallery and the Cartae Open School. This Artist Run Centre is passionate about the work being produced by contemporary artists and arts writers and critics in Canada and abroad. Many Canadian artists have shown work at ace early in their careers. We are an established (but not establishment) part of the unique ecosystem of Canadian contemporary art.

Selections for the Regular Program are made by a jury consisting of Winnipeg-based artists/curators/critics, ace staff and board. The ace jury reviews submissions within the context of aceartinc.’s mandate and goals and our available resources. aceartinc. will pay CARFAC exhibition fees to artists; travel and accommodation, one-way shipping and per-diems will also be provided. A writer is commissioned to write a response to the Regular Exhibitions via the Critical Distance writing program, which is published online and anthologised in PaperWait. We professionally document each show.

aceartinc. is dedicated to diversity in its programming and to this end encourages applications from all contemporary artists and curators, groups and collectives in all visual arts media. But we only have the chance to exhibit you if you apply. Please apply.
