Visual Arts Mississauga's Creative Residency presents the State of Being (of the Current Situation). This virtual exhibition reflects the current, ongoing narrative that each resident must face - whether that is the capturing of information through a technical application, a question of human existence, an analysis of the self through a fractured lens, or of the shamefulness our society implicates on its elderly population.


State of Being allows the VCR to carve out their space as emerging artists while in the pursuit of showcasing their reality of their current, individualized situations.
