I brought my family to the Centennial Planetarium to check out Contemporary Calgary's new home base last night and we were all activated. The kids breathed in every nook and cranny and started to make this space part of their hub. We were happy to speak with artists Bill Gardner, Alberta Rose, Jennifer Ireland, Cody Cox and Ali Caesar about their current practice in the Collider space. It was also so wonderful to engage in conversations with my wife Sandy and our friend Sheena about Brutalism and the exhibition of Clemens Gritl's futuristic visions. If you haven't been down to become part of the transition it really is worth your time and is open to the public Thursday evenings and Sundays until September when it will have regular gallery hours.
