Canadians Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller are now the subject of a “selected survey” at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. The exhibition opened earlier this month and is on view through August 18. The exhibition includes major works such as The Muriel Lake Incident (1999) and Storm Room (2009) and Cardiff’s The Forty-Part Motet (2001, detail above) in the Henry Moore sculpture gallery.
This is a still from The Paradise Institute, which Cardiff and Miller showed when the represented Canada in the Venice Biennale. This work is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland through June 9.
Cardiff and Bures Miller were the guests on Episode No. 38 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. Host Tyler Green asked them about their works at last year’s Documenta, the relationship between their work and trompe l’oeil and how they pick sounds to use in their works — and why many sounds often pop up again and again, in multiple pieces.
Episode No. 38 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller. The Canadian duo’s The Murder of Crows (2008) is receiving its U.S. debut at New York’s Park Avenue Armory where it will remain on view for a couple more weeks, through September 9. This is a picture of the NYC installation, shot from above. For more installation views, see the Park Avenue Armory’s Facebook photo album.
Cardiff and Bures Miller are also showing two new pieces at Documenta, in Kassel, Germany through September 16. (We talked about those works on the show as well.) Don’t miss the Cardiff-and-Miller-provided YouTube videos of the Documenta pieces: The Alter Bahnhof Video Walk, of which the YouTube video provides a strikingly good experience, and Forest (for a thousand years).
