A combined evening of two international artists at the Contemporary Art Gallery.
Outside, Who Knows, new neon work by British artist Tim Etchells, as part of PuSH Festival, their artist in residence for 2014.
As artistic director of theatre company Forced Entertainment, Etchells has “directed, written, and occasionally performed in, dozens of critically acclaimed performance works that have been shown at major festivals and theatres around the world.”
And inside, Fröbel Fröbeled, “an ambitious body of newly commissioned work” and the first solo exhibition in Canada by French artist Aurélien Froment.
“Froment has produced an exhibition which focuses on the series of educational toys (Spielgaben or play gifts) designed by Friedrich Fröbel (1782–1852), the German founder of the original Kindergarten.”
Froment’s work is on until March 16 2014
For Etchells work, swing by the CAG anytime until June 1 2014
