Slow Art Day: Housewarming

Sat April 15, 2023 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free with admission. No registration required.

Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art. This year, we’ll reflect on some of the social challenges and inequities explored in the special exhibition Karine Giboulo: Housewarming.

Drop in between 10 am – 12 pm to participate in close looking activities and engage in discussion about the works.


Enter a world at once familiar and uncanny. Montreal-based artist Karine Giboulo invites visitors into an immersive reimagining of her home. Brought to life by over 500 miniature polymer clay figures, this is no ordinary house. Born of the COVID-19 pandemic, Housewarming is a sculpted documentary of individual and collective experiences grounded in current events. The colourful dioramas furnishing each room prompt reflection about the challenges we face as a society, including connectedness and isolation, aging and care, labour and consumerism, the climate crisis, food insecurity, and housing instability. Learn more
