Upcoming Exhibitions:


The Walls Between Us

July 31 – October 17, 2020

Featuring work by the artist collective known as Artnauts, The Walls Between Us will examine different types of borders – politically charged, contested, invisible and those clearly delineated, as well as socioeconomic, emotional and other intangible barriers.

The Artnauts is an artist collective that uses the visual arts as a tool for addressing global issues while connecting with artists from around the world. The name denotes the practice that is “not” art as usual, going beyond the confines of the traditional or conventional art world and blurring the boundaries between art, activism, and social practice. This social justice focus is in great alignment with CVA’s mission to promote dialogue and engagement with global, urban issues through the lens of contemporary art.
