Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller: THE MURDER OF CROWS
3 August - 1 September 2012
Park Avenue Armory, New York
Artists to Watch: Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller
Opening this week is the largest sound installation this artist collective has created. Consisting of ninety-eight speakers mounted within Park Avenue Armory’s Drill Hall, a narrative of vibrations encapsulates this space, confronting concepts of desire, intimacy, love and loss. Oh, the drama! Cardiff and Miller also have two new works on view at Documenta through September.
