Soft Movements in the Same Direction The New Gallery 208 Centre St SE Calgary, AB
April 11 – May 17, 2014 Opening: Friday April 11, 8:00 p.m.
Steven Beckly and Benjamin Bellas
The New Gallery is pleased to present Soft Movements in the Same Direction by Steven Beckly (Toronto, ON) and Benjamin Bellas (Chicago, IL). This exhibition pairs the work of two artists concerned with representations of intimacy, impermanence, and distance. With video, photography, and found objects, they provide forms for the inarticulable ache of an unknown absence. Accompanying exhibition essay “We really loved each other, you know” by Lindsay Sorell can be found here: http://thenewgallery.org/soft-movements/
I’m flying to Calgary this week for a show at The New Gallery, opening on Friday. If you’re around, please come have a drink. It’s my first time in Calgary, so if you have any tips on things to do, please get in touch. See you soon, Calgary!
