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 ARoS Aarhus Art Museum; Vancouver Art Gallery; Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Hamburger Banhoff, Berlin; Modern Art Oxford; Miami Art Museum; Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona; and Mathildenhöhe, Darmstatdt. 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 Menil Collection, Houston, TX, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain. A new installation by Cardiff and Miller will premiere in Soundscapes: Listening to Paintings at The National Gallery, London (July – September 2015), and the artists will participate in A Brief History of Human Kind at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem (May – December 2015) and Full House at the Molsdorf Palace in Erfurt, Germany (June – September 2015).
