Part of the programming for Janet Macpherson: A Canadian Bestiary

In partnership with Soundstreams, this musical event will explore notions of wilderness and soundscapes in conversation with artist Janet Macpherson and composer David Jaeger. There will also be a Gallery Prelude featuring a docent-led tour of Janet Macpherson: A Canadian Bestiary.
