Soothsayer Serenades at Contemporary Calgary

On Apr 15, 2021

Calgary, Canada

As part of ICI’s exhibition Notes for Tomorrow, the work Soothsayer Serenades by artist Amrita Hepi, is a provocation for moving together while apart, without proof of presence. An offline dance class or walk.

A new playlist and provocation will be released on the 15th of each month, over the course of eight weeks. There will be no Zoom meet-up, no Insta live - just the promise to move together. Leave the trace where you wish in the real world.

Soothsayer is a person who can predict the future by magical, intuitive, or event rational means - a provocation to this moving-together-ness is that we become that sage.

This iteration of Soothsayer Serenades has been created in collaboration with the artist and Contemporary Calgary. Check-in monthly for updates, with playlists available to listen to on Spotify.
