Art and Cold Cash
Feb 03, 2007 - Mar 11, 2007

PROJECT ROOM

February 3 to March 11, 2007. Opening Reception: Saturday, February 3, from 7 to 11 p.m.

With work by the Art and Cold Cash collective: Ruby Arngna’naaq, Jack Butler, Sheila Butler, Patrick Mahon, William Noah and by invitation Myra Kukiiyaut. Art and Cold Cash connects contemporary art to discourses surrounding money with works in video and drawing, created by a five-member artist collective. Exhibitions in public galleries across Canada will be linked to related exhibitions in the airports at each location. A special selection of work will also tour to small airports in the Arctic settlements of Baker Lake, Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit where no galleries exist. The exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art is paired with an exhibition in the newly completed Terminal 1 at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Supported by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, University of Western Ontario, The Hamlet of Baker Lake, Nunavut, The Jessie Oonark Centre, and Heli-Max Helicopter Company and Cumberland Resources. All exhibitions and activities at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art are supported by Toronto Culture, the Ontario Arts Council, BMO Financial Group, individual memberships and private donations.
