About

Flux Gallery exhibits engaging contemporary art in any medium by early-stage emerging artists.  Located in Winnipeg at 2-290 McDermot Avenue, within aceartinc., Flux Gallery seeks to address the lack of exhibition space for this group by providing a 400 square foot space dedicated exclusively to the exhibition of work by early-emerging artists.

Flux Gallery is programmed by a committee of Winnipeg-based emerging artists/ Designers/ Curators, aceart Staff and Board.  Shows are programmed on a quarterly basis. Selected artist(s)/ curators will have the gallery for two weeks; this period includes install, run, and strike of exhibition.

aceartinc. is acting as an arm’s length facilitator but is very pleased to provide support to more artists via this innovative project. You can support Flux Gallery by making a donation!
