2 Rooms Contemporary Art Projects - Bonavista Biennale

Location: Duntara, NL

The Bonavista Biennale, Art Encounters on the Edge, is an exhibition of contemporary visual art on now until September 17, 2017. The regional event has a number of locations set up to exhibit professional artistic installations throughout the Bonavista Peninsula, to mark the Canada 150 celebrations. The event features the works of 26 artists from Newfoundland and Labrador, and other parts of Canada, including several indigenous artists. Artwork is displayed in non-gallery spaces – including heritage sites, community halls, beaches, unused schools, a fishing store, as well as some other non-traditional spaces. The event also includes a number of speaker series presentations and workshops. Organizers anticipate the event will increase the number of visitors to the region by as many as 1,000 over the four weeks, bringing as much as $600,000 in new tourist revenues to the peninsula.
