The 2012 Calgary Biennial Committee is very pleased to present
HEARTS OF THE NEW WEST
the inaugural iteration of Calgary's biennial for contemporary art

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.
Please visit calgarybiennial.com for more information.
The show will run 8 September to 29 September. Admission is free and the public is welcome.
Please join us on Saturday 8 September for the opening reception of this special event!
The reception will take the form of a gallery-hop; beginning with a special curator's talk and pre-drinks at 7:00 PM at AVALANCHE! (1235 Macleod Tr SE) before moving north to 809 at 8:30 PM (809 5th Ave NW) and finally concluding at Haight Gallery around 10:00 PM (2018 24th Ave NW).
