DOORS SET TO OPEN IN ONE YEAR
Oct 8, 2019
“Everything has to be perfect,” Rick Chopp, the Inuit Art Centre project manager is describing the upcoming glass installation for the visible vault. The vault will be encased in two-storeys of glass, with glass shelving inside to display the Inuit carving collection. “There is little room for error when working with glass”, Rick adds.

With the Inuit Art Centre in its final year of construction and expected opening in Fall 2020, progress is happening everywhere: The floors on all four levels of the centre have been poured. The mezzanine steel is anchored to support the Mezzanine bridge that will offer a unique vantage point for viewing objects within the Visible Vault. The steel beams that support the curved outer frame of the gallery are complete and will eventually support the welcoming 5,000-square-foot glass atrium on the street level inviting the community in to experience the centre.

The Gallery Shop is being framed with a network of beams and columns as part of the renovation that will see the much-loved retail experience grow to meet the needs of the visitors. The expanded shop will feature street-facing windows that will provide another connection between the public and art.

The hard-working crew of about 65 will soon grow to 100 as the carpenters, plumbers, electricians begin work to create the inner workings and details to support the multi-dimensional centre.

“We’re anticipating the imminent arrival of the curtain wall framing that will wrap around the main floor, making the three-storey vault visible from the street,” Rick states. “And we expect to have the glass and main front entrance doors installed by mid-December.”

The fourth floor of the existing WAG building is being transformed into the new education and studio spaces by our construction crews. As the Inuit Art Centre will connect to the existing WAG building, the extensive renovation and redevelopment of the WAG continues. “We’ve already cut in three of the links between the addition and the existing WAG on the basement, main and fourth floors, and within a month or so we’ll start on the third floor gallery level with the mechanical, electrical and interior framing.”

“It’s an extraordinarily complicated structural steel building with the twisting angles and circles.” Rick notes regarding Michael Maltzan’s innovative design coming to life. Maltzan’s design is creating a progressive, transformative architectural space to engage the community. The curved line of the building comes with its construction challenges, but when complete will be a welcome and sweeping change to Winnipeg’s downtown. “It’s completely unique.”

Outside the box
Architect of WAG's Inuit Art Centre inspired by the endless space and distant horizons of the North

At the edge of the observation deck, Michael Maltzan pauses, his bright yellow safety vest glaring bright amid the lines of soaring steel bars and flat concrete floors. He looks down over the gallery below, or what will soon become the gallery, for now exhibiting only a tangle of cables and crates waiting to be opened.

It is Saturday afternoon at the site of the Winnipeg Art Gallery's new Inuit Art Centre, the gleaming new facility rising at the corner of Memorial Boulevard and St. Mary Avenue. The construction that buzzes most days is quiet for the time being, so as to allow three tours of the site for a small group of WAG donors and journalists.

The tour rose from the entry atrium, dominated by the serpentine steel frame of the three-storey visible vault, where the gallery's archived collection of Inuit art will be visible to all who enter. It's a rare feature for an art gallery: usually, works not on display are locked away in the back of house.

But here, Maltzan explains, all of these things will be in conversation. The artwork, the curation, the second-floor learning centre and the vast main exhibition hall: all of it is intended to flow together, inviting visitors to stream into and through and around it.

He gestures 30 feet over his head, to the curving ovals of 22 recessed skylights that will bathe the gallery in what he calls "diffused and suffused light." They will give light back to the city, too: at night, Maltzan says, they will glow like a "lantern for the neighbourhood."

"It has a huge scale, as you can see," he says.

It is the first time media has gotten a peek inside the new $65-million centre. When it opens next fall, it will house the world's largest collection of Inuit art in 40,000 square feet of space spanning four levels....
