June 3 - August 28
"Allora & Calzadilla: Echo to Artifact" is the first major exhibition in Canada of the work of internationally renowned artists Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla. Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta, the exhibition will feature a selection of recent work that ranges from film and sculpture to sound pieces and performances, and new work based on the artists’ research into western Canada’s prehistoric past. The works in the exhibition consider the nature of sound, music and the voice as a way to animate both natural forms and man-made artifacts - they include the remains of dinosaurs, a piece of Hadean rock and the oldest musical instrument ever discovered.
