In 2017, Indefinite Arts Centre expanded its exhibition strategy to reach new audiences and new communities. Here is a list of a few of the previous exhibitions featuring Indefinite Arts Centre artists.
Connections at Dubai’s Historic District + Dubai International Airport
Thanks to support from Canada Council for the Arts and Global Affairs Canada, Indefinite Arts Centre’s artists were represented at two exhibitions in Dubai – first, in Dubai’s historic district; and then, as Canada’s first arts organization to be exhibited at the world’s busiest airport – the Dubai International Airport.

LAUNCHPAD 2.0 at Festival Hall
Prior to being sent away to Dubai for our 2019 international initiative, 14 of our artists’ works were proudly on display at Festival Hall. The works showcase the incredible talents of our artists, whose works demonstrate a breadth of perspectives – from pop culture, Alberta landscapes, nature, and more.

Local artist Michelle Austen hosted a workshop in September for IAC artists on Mondays and Wednesdays. This workshop is part of a series that provides arts training to IAC artists while forging connections to our local arts community. The vibrant colours and gestures express the joy artists had exploring the inspiration of a garden and the diversity that creates community.
The Fantasy Spaces art show developed out of a theme that was observed in the studio at Indefinite Arts Centre. During the process of creating many of our artists are drawn to imagery and narratives of the fantastic, while others were found to be making representations of the ordinary into something much more extraordinary. Fantasy Spaces invites you to step out of the conventional and familiar and into a world of excitement, where the possibilities are endless.
Pushing Boundaries with Art, Nature & History: An Indefinite Arts Residency
Through generous funding received from the Rozsa Foundation, this exhibition displayed the work of 30 artists from IAC who traveled to the Leighton Art Centre (LAC) during September 2018 to participate in a residency program in our historic studios. Celebrating freedom of expression inspired by the natural environment and the site’s history, artists worked with both LAC and IAC instructors toward a goal of creating stunning new pieces.
