PIA has commissioned three projects for fall/winter 2015-16.  The first of these projects is with Iranian-born, Toronto-based artist Abbas Akhavan, whose  practice ranges from site-specific ephemeral installations to drawing, video and performance. The second project includes a two-month residency with New York artist Liz Magic Laser, best known for her provocative, engaging, and carefully thought-out and scripted performance art. The third commission is with First Nations artist Duane Linklater, and will take place in 2016.
