MKG127 is pleased to present The Bill Burns Show (Part 2),
an exhibition of new work by Bill Burns.
June 7 - July 5, 2014
In Bill Burns' third solo exhibition at MKG127, Burns looks at the relationships of nature, animals, and the artistic avant-garde to advanced industrialism. Goat milking and honey rendering events will be announced as the exhibition unfolds (The Bill Burns Show Part 1 included a sheep shearing and log carvings). The atmosphere is changeable and utopian.
Bill Burns was born into a book selling family in Regina, Saskatchewan.
His work has been shown at the Institute for Contemporary Arts, London; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. His recent book series entitled Three Books and an Audio CD about Plants and Animals and War was published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther Konig, Collogne. His new book entitled Hans Ulrich Obrist Hear Us will be published by YYZ BOOKS, Toronto in 2014.
