About The Program
Visual Arts: Touring Exhibition Program
Manitoba Arts Network’s Visual Arts Touring Exhibition Program makes visual art exhibitions available to arts and cultural organizations throughout the province of Manitoba. The purpose of the program is to provide high quality, cost-effective exhibitions to communities enhancing the awareness and appreciation of regional and national artists.
Exhibitions are selected from both emerging and professional artists, and present a range of media and themes, featuring contemporary work and traditional approaches to artmaking through solo, two-person, and group exhibitions. MAN pays artists a basic exhibition fee each month a touring exhibition is booked. If funding/grants for exhibitions are successfully secured, then artist fees are paid at approved CARFAC rates.
MAN covers costs associated with professional crating of exhibitions, shipping and insurance of works while on tour. Selected exhibitions typically tour for a one-year period either in the current or following year.
Our programs can help you take the next step in your career, book a tour through Manitoba Arts Network, or expand your professional network.
