Xpace COVID-19 April 2020 Update

Dear friends of Xpace, 

A couple of updates on our end, as we continue to follow the guidance of Canadian public health authorities to protect the health and safety of our staff and community:

Xpace Cultural Centre will remain closed until Tuesday, April 28th and all onsite exhibitions and events have been put on hold.

COVID-19 Artist Resources

There are multiple grassroots and state-led emergency funds, resources, toolkits and volunteer services being shared citywide for artists, freelancers and folx most affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. You can visit our public Facebook group and check our Instagram stories for daily updates, and feel free to send over any initiatives you’d like us to share with our networks!

Web Programming

As we continue to brainstorm creative ways of supporting and engaging with you remotely.

Please join us on Friday, April 3rd @ 1 PM for a virtual tour of Memorial: Artists of the Venezuelan Diaspora led by artist José Andrés Mora

Additionally, you can tune into a free Tenant’s Rights Webinar facilitated by Piera Savage, co-presented by Images Festival

In the meanwhile, you can always browse the public External Space archives on our website, which carries a generous collection of video, animation and media-based works by emerging artists that have exhibited with us in the past 9 years.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Alexia with any ideas, suggestions or requests at [email protected]

We will keep you updated on any changes as they roll in. 

Sending much love, stay safe and cozy!

Alexia, Natalie, Philip and Enna
