Ferdinando Bilanzola (1956-2001), Judi Burgess, Raffaele Caterini, Paul Cvetich, John Kinsella, Janice Kovar, Paul Ropel-Morski and Lisa Wöhrle are The Contemporaries.
All McMaster University art graduates, they formed the artist collective "The Contemporaries" in the late 1980s and exhibited extensively in the Hamilton region until the mid 90s. The Contemporaries: This Must Be The Place brings the artists back together in an exhibition that focuses on their current practices, while also taking a look back at the early days. The connections that drew The Contemporaries together - deep ties of friendship, art and their shared history with McMaster and Hamilton - have remained intact throughout the years.
