Join us on Saturday, December 18, 2021 for Pinnguanipaujait and the closing of When Veins Meet Like Rivers; ????? / okhížata / maadawaan!
Pinnguanipaujait (“great big games”) was envisioned and developed by asinnajaq and is presented in collaboration with WAG-Quamajuq.
The games, held in celebration of inuulirvisiunira (asinnajaq’s birthday), will feed your competitive side + sense of humour and include competitions to see who can attach the most clothespins to their face, untie the greatest number of knots, quickly find safety pins in a container of rice, do the best makeup on a friend blindfolded, unwrap a package the fastest and a race to a finish line after nimbly securing a nail to a can with their hips.
The event will take place from 3-5pm in the Skylight Gallery of the Winnipeg Art Gallery, 300 Memorial Blvd. There will be games for folks of all ages, lots of laughs, food, and prizes!
The closing of When Veins Meet Like Rivers; ????? / okhížata / maadawaan, an exhibition featuring asinnajaq, Kite, and Dayna Danger will follow. Snacks, refreshments, and cake will be served in the Skylight Gallery at the WAG from 6-9pm.
When Veins Meet Like Rivers; ????? / okhížata / maadawaan will remain open at Plug In ICA until 8pm, guests are welcome to move between the show and the events.
