Opening Reception & Exhibition: Jürgen Partenheimer, The Archive – The Raven Diaries


Opening reception: Thursday, September 11, 7-10pm
All welcome

Opening on Thursday, September 11, The Archive – The Raven Diaries will be the first solo exhibition in Canada of work by acclaimed German artist Jürgen Partenheimer. Reflecting the diversity of the artist’s practice, the exhibition will comprise of works on paper, text, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture, much of it produced in Vancouver in spring 2014 during his residency as the Audain Distinguished Artist-in-Residence, hosted by Emily Carr University of Art + Design. As part of the exhibition at the CAG, two ceramic vessels will be presented in the Koerner European Ceramics Gallery at the Museum of Anthropology. In October Vancouver Electronic Ensemble will create a special improvised performance as part of the Vancouver New Music Festival. Musicians will be scattered across the gallery rooms, as sound, light and colour flow throughout the building creating an abstract sonic environment in response to Partenheimer’s particular form of poetic abstraction.
