MOCA Cleveland and the Cleveland Museum of Art proudly present Janet Cardiff (born March 1957, Brussels, Ontario). Cardiff will present on her work and converse with David Norr, Chief Curator of MOCA Cleveland. 

Working solo and in collaboration with her husband George Bures Miller, Cardiff creates audio works and multimedia installations that challenge perception by generating unexpected sensorial experiences. Cardiff’s sensitive yet experimental approach to art-making has garnered international acclaim. The Paradise Institute, a 17-seat movie theater by Cardiff and Miller that is currently on view at MOCA, won the Venice Biennale Special Prize when it was unveiled in 2001. Forty Part Motet (2001), a 40-speaker sound work on view at the CMA from May 4 – June 8, is a stunning example of Cardiff’s pioneering approach to audio-based installations. Don't miss this rare opportunity to join the artist in person as she discusses her dramatic, dimensional, uncanny work.
