Hearts of the New West: The 2012 Calgary Biennial is a group exhibition signifying the beginning of a Calgarian biennial. Taking place simultaneously at venues Haight Gallery, 809 Exhibition Space, AVALANCHE! Institute of Contemporary Art, The Contemporary Art Gallery of Calgary, The #000000 Gallery, and various site-specific public locales – the show aims to unite twenty-four Calgarian artists as they respond to the polysemous and ever-inconstant notion of ‘home’. Curated by Steven Cottingham.
The 2012 Calgary Biennial Committee would like to acknowledge the support of Calgary 2012 Cultural Capital Organization, The Art Cult of Calgary, and Ambient Light Press.
