Highlighting the synergy between visual art and music, Art is Art showcases the visual art practices of prominent Canadian recording artists. Commissioned by CARAS in 2017, this exhibition encourages its participants to explore the extensive manifestations of artistic energy. Whether crafting a song or painting a portrait, the creative core is similar. Art is art – and this collection celebrates the creative connection between these two disciplinary fields.
Polaris Music Prize Posters
As a sister organization, CARAS/The JUNO Awards are proud to support the Polaris Music Prize; rewarding artists who produce Canadian music albums of distinction. Illustrators are commissioned yearly to produce artwork in the spirit of gig posters for the year’s shortlisted albums. Come see posters of the 13 winning albums.
Women to the Front
This exhibition pays respect to voices that are often missing from the story of the Canadian music industry. The influence of Canadian women in music is indisputable as they continue to dominate the charts, break records, and innovate. Take a look inside the layered and complex world of being a female in the music industry. This exhibition is presented in partnership with the 2019 JUNO Host Committee. Who invited women to the front? The women.
