This Week at Agnes

Featured Event

Performance with Walter Scott

Thursday 23 January, 7–9 pm

Experience a whole new side of Walter Scott’s work as he takes the stage with a multi-person cast featuring images, voice and sound.

Walter Scott is an interdisciplinary artist working across comics, drawing, video, performance and sculpture. His comic series, Wendy, chronicles the continuing misadventures of a young artist in a satirical version of the contemporary art world. Scott is this year’s Stonecroft Artist-in-Residence.

THE ANNUAL STONECROFT ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM, made possible by Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, began in 2017. These extended creative residencies have become central to our contemporary art program: they deepen access to artistic process, support creation and spark enduring relationships with leading artists.

Digital Developments

New website launches

Designed and developed by Studio: Blackwell in Toronto, our new online presence is part of a multi-year digital development initiative. Danuta Sierhuis, Digital Development Coordinator, points to key features of the new online presence, “Visitors will appreciate the site’s mobile-responsive design, and improved navigation and searchability within a gorgeous fully contemporary and accessible layout.” This evolved design and functionality provides a foundation to expand the Agnes digital platform, in the second phase of development scheduled for release later in 2020.
