"The Paradise Institute: Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller"
2002-12-06 until 0000-00-00
See the multi-media work that won first prize for Canada at the 2001 Venice Biennale! Curated by Canadian Commissioner Wayne Baerwaldt, this clever and luminous installation challenges viewers’ notions of cinematic reality. Cardiff and Miller, originally from Alberta but currently residing in Berlin, are internationally renowned for this mesmerizing artwork. Experience it now at Plug In ICA, the gallery which first brought the work to Venice and the world.
