Internationally celebrated artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures  Miller are making  their highly anticipated return to Toronto this spring with  “Lost in the Memory Palace.”

It’s  a selection of seven installations incorporating  complex soundtracks, videos, and objects never before seen together in Canada.

The exhibition opens April 6th  and runs until  August 18th and includes a new  work specially created by the pair for the AGO.

The gallery  will also  install Janet Cardiff’s celebrated soundscape Forty-Part Motet (2001) in the Henry Moore Sculpture Centre. It features 40 mounted audio speakers defining  a round space, each one  emitting  a voice singing Thomas Tallis’s 1573 choral composition “Spem in Alium.”  The arrangement of speakers gives participants the chance  to explore choral music as they would a sculpture, by listening to it in parts and as a whole.
