Art Gallery of Alberta

What’s Ahead this February at your AGA

 

Explore and broaden your experience with art! Experience an enriching series of after-work pop-up live music shows, film nights, weekly art activities and more. Start your February off by encountering programming and education classes at your AGA!

This February, we open two new exhibitions: Clocks for Seeing: Photography, Time and Motion and Fischli and Weiss / Ibghy and Lemmens. Clocks for Seeing explores time and memory with photographs from the late 19th to early 21st century. Fischli and Weiss / Ibghy and Lemmens are two moving images artworks where controlled chaos and precarious balancing acts juxtapose the ideas of human ingenuity and failure.

In conjunction with the exhibitions, visitors can enjoy special programming and education classes. The first program is Art for Lunch on Thursday, February 16 where attendees will learn more about the history of photography with a tour of Clocks for Seeing.

Engage further with exhibition-related events, talks, tours, films and art classes. Visitors of all ages and artistic experience can join in and have fun this month at your AGA!
