The Illingworth Kerr Gallery, as part of Alberta College of Art + Design is pleased to announce IKG LIVE 2, a 3 day festival dedicated to live art. Organized by Lorenzo Fusi, Visiting Academic Curator, the festival is at its second edition.
Live art can encompass many different activities including happenings and actions, performance, physical theatre and dance. Each day includes multiple live performances that will be staged at the IKG, one after the other or simultaneously.
IKG LIVE offers a platform and stage for regional artists, whose practices actively engage, challenge and question the notion of temporality within the exhibition context.
