Manitoba Arts Network’s Exhibition Program tours visual art throughout the province of Manitoba. The purpose of the program is to provide high quality, cost-effective exhibitions to communities that will heighten the awareness of regional and national artists. The Touring Exhibition Program enhances art appreciation and education by assisting arts and cultural organizations to develop visual arts programming; providing rural and northern communities the opportunity to exhibit quality work.

M.A.N.’s touring exhibitions balance a variety of media and themes, including both traditional and contemporary artwork.

Manitoba Arts Network touring exhibitions are available for one-month bookings to Arts Network members and non-members. Member organizations benefit from reduced booking rates. Exhibitions may also be booked for multiple months if slots are available.

Our subsidized booking fees cover all general costs of the exhibition, including artist fees, shipping, insurance, and educational supplements. Detailed, illustrated exhibition installation and handling guidelines are provided with all touring shows.

All transportation and shipping services for our touring exhibitions are generously donated by Gardewine.

Information about exhibition specifications, booking fees, tour dates, and exhibition availability is outlined on each exhibition page. For more information and booking inquiries, contact our Visual Arts Coordinator.

New exhibitions are added to our touring roster via an annual open call for submissions. Exhibition proposals are accepted from both emerging and professional artists from Manitoba and beyond, as well as from independent curators and organizations. The call is open to artists working in a wide variety of visual art media and can include solo, two-person, and group exhibitions.

While we do not cover the production costs for touring exhibitions, M.A.N. will:

  • Develop didactic and educational materials to accompany exhibitions
  • Cover costs associated with the professional crating of exhibitions for shipping
  • Provide insurance of works while on tour.

Selected exhibitions typically tour for a minimum one-year period, with the possibility of touring for up to two years.

MAN pays artists a basic exhibition fee for each month that their touring exhibition is booked. If we are successful in securing funding/grants for an exhibition, then artist fees are paid at approved CARFAC rates.
