Canadian artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller live and work in Grindrod, British Columbia. Collaborating since 1995, the artists are internationally recognized for their immersive multimedia works that create transcendent multisensory experiences which draw the viewer into often unsettling narratives.
Cardiff and Miller have had numerous solo shows at international venues including the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, ARoS Aarhus Art Museum; Vancouver Art Gallery; Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Modern Art Oxford; Miami Art Museum; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey; Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona; and Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt. A major show of the artists’ work is currently on view at the Lehmbruck Museum in Duisburg, Germany, and will travel to Museum Tinguely in Basel, Switzerland in June 2023. Their work has also been included in recent group exhibitions and biennales such as the 19th Biennale of Sydney in 2014 and dOCUMENTA (13). Representing Canada at the 2001 Venice Biennale, the artists received the Biennale's Premio Prize and Benesse Prize. Recently, the artists debuted new site-specific commissions for Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, CA, The Menil Collection, Houston, TX, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain.
