It’s your last chance to check out a unique art exhibit in Mississauga

Published November 11, 2019 at 8:49 pm


You don’t need to travel to Toronto to check out high-end, elevated art, as one of Mississauga’s newest venues is currently hosting a much-buzzed-about art exhibit that’s here for a limited time only. 

For those who unaware, The Biennial of Art–which offers residents 72 days of free art in an effort to make contemporary art available to everyone–is happening at the Small Arms Inspection Building (1352 Lakeshore Road)  in Mississauga.

Now that the Biennial is in full swing (it opened Sept. 21 and is on view until Dec. 1), residents are free to tour the sites and enjoy the installations.

Biennial exhibitions and programs are free and open to the public at more than 15 locations in the GTA.

One upcoming exhibit worth checking out? 

Jumblies Theater & Arts Workshop

November 16 and 30

Performance time: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

On Saturdays throughout the Biennial, a team of artists from Jumblies Theatre & Arts facilitate public art-making workshops for all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. After viewing the installation, participants are invited to write, draw, or embroider their responses on felted quilt pieces. Both Iroquois and Anishinaabe beading styles are shared, alongside open discussion of the installation’s content. Following the workshops the pieces generated will be combined in a giant quilt that addresses the Dish with One Spoon regional treaty and presented at the Biennial’s 2021 edition.
