As part of ongoing community outreach and in-gallery interpretive initiatives, the Art Gallery of Alberta is producing a podcast series titled In Conversation. This podcast is designed to complement the content of AGA exhibitions by providing listeners with interviews from exhibiting AGA artists and other creative professionals. The AGA’s in-gallery interpretive activities have been enthusiastically received and In Conversation will continue to capture the public’s interest by offering engaging original content on publicly-available podcast platforms. The podcast enhances the gallery experience by expanding upon an exhibition’s themes, providing listeners with information directly from the artist. Episodes of the podcast series will be produced in conjunction with the opening of new exhibitions
The second episode of this series is produced for the present exhibition Peter von Tiesenhausen: Songs for Pythagoras. This recording features an extensive interview with the artist about his pursuit of ecological sustainability, his commitment to the land and Communities and an attempt to understand time and substance through a unique artistic practice.
