SYNONYM’S FIRST EVER FUNDRAISER!
We will be raising funds to employ local & visiting contemporary artists to create gigantic public art pieces focused in the North End, West Broadway & Osborne Village to create safer spaces and enhance the neighbourhood at large. These projects will not only employ contemporary artists but create mentorship roles to younger artists, employ artists through the Red Road Lodge under mentorship through Kenneth Lavallee and finally bringing in National artists to put Winnipeg on the street art map.

COHESIVE DEVICES EXHIBITION LAUNCH:
Feat. Artists Graham Wiebe, Reza Resai & The Travelling Sign Painters
An art exhibiton using the street art medium of wheat paste in combination with fine art photographers and text works to create COHESIVE DEVICES.
Reza Rezai’s sparsely populated, vivid landscapes, and Graham Wiebe’s candid glimpses into his life are bound together not only by the thematic concept of the cohesive device, but literally, as well, by the wheatpaste that adheres these works to the wall.
With Cohesive Devices, Synonym wants to continue the dialogue about contemporary art and its place in our streets. After this show has run its course, the panels on which these works are wheatpasted will be re-installed outdoors, in their natural habitat, to start a new life, subject to the elements, other street artists, and the imagination of a whole new public viewership.
Tickets are 15$
