A Contemporary Art Showcase For You! 

2017-09-25 10.15.39 web.jpg

Here’s a burst of energy and light in your inbox! It’s Cyber Monday, so your email inbox is probably full of "act now," "don’t miss," great deals.

This is not that.

This is a chance for you to spend 30 seconds, 2 minutes or however much time you like checking out some inspiring, challenging contemporary art!

Mississauga-based artist Mary Ma's, Wind Water Wave was a surprise event of CAFKA.16. At once kinetic, impressionistic, mesmerizing and embracing, people returned many times to immerse themselves in Mary Ma's vision.

Scenocosme, French artists Grégory Lasserre and Anaïs met den Ancxt, brought the magic of Akousmaflore to CAFKA.16. How could it be that simply touching a leaf could create music? How could it not?

Toronto-based artist Jaime Angelopoulos's Swoon was built by local artists and CAFKA volunteers. Proof again, if ever it was needed, that CAFKA is what we do together that we can't do alone!

Like what you see? Want more? So do we! We’ll be back in touch tomorrow (on Giving Tuesday) with our plans for CAFKA.18 and how you can get involved!

P.S. Don't miss the next Big Ideas in Art & Culture lecture where you will hear one of the most influential art writers in New York City discuss contemporary art biennials. Come to Kitchener City Hall on Saturday, December 2nd at 7pm to hear Guelph native Paddy Johnson, founding editor of Art F City, an art blog about holding opinions, even when they're kind of scary.
