The Big Four is the result of Monkman's visit to the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede in 2012 and his interactions with Glenbow's collections. His newest work draws on archival documents, historical images, film footage, Blackfoot artifacts and historical artifacts documenting the history of the Calgary Stampede, the rodeo and the Indian Village.

Panel Discussion: Made in Calgary: The 1970s
Thursday, June 6

In Conversation: Made in Calgary 1960s Panel Discussion

Made in Calgary: The 1960s Panel Discussion

Prominent Calgary artists active during the 1970s join exhibition curator Ron Moppett for a panel discussion on the myriad ways in which the decade shaped the city's creative output - from the opening of new institutions to the influx of ideas from afar to increased corporate patronage as a result of the economic boom.

As an example of the move towards experience-based conceptual art in the '70s, the evening's program will include a special performance of Paul Woodrow's The Tadpole Quartet. In the piece (conceived in the '70s and only performed once), a quartet of musicians perform a "song" by reading a music ledger painted on an aquarium, taking their cues from the shifting "notes": the fish in the aquarium.

Doors and bar service at 6:30pm
TadpoleQuartet performance at 7:00pm
Panel discussion at 7:45pm
