It might be an understatement to say that Contemporary Calgary is having a moment.
Earlier this year they announced that for the 2016 instalment of their award-winning, nationally-hailed event series “LOOK”, they would bring back two favourites from 2015: New Yorker staff writer, Adam Gopnik, and crowd-rousing auctioneer Stephen Ranger. As a stunning addition to this roster, the incomparable performer and art champion Steve Martin was also announced. As a proponent of contemporary art and a particular fan of that which is of the Canadian bent, Mr. Martin will participate in a can’t-be-missed conversation about the art of our times.
As if this wasn’t impressive enough, Contemporary Calgary has just announced that #LOOK2016 will be hosted by Lainey Lui. Lainey is an etalk Senior Correspondent, currently one of the leadings ladies on CTV’s The Social, and scribe of the immensely popular celebrity gossip blog, Lainey Gossip. As host for LOOK2016, she is sure to provide some entertaining commentary.
The final pièce de résistance to this line up, comes in the form of acclaimed Chef Steve Smee, currently the Chef/Owner of Ten Foot Henry (previously: UNA Pizza, Ox & Angela and Mercato), will be creating an ‘artistically-inspired’ menu as part of a one-night-only pop-up restaurant for VIP+Dinner level ticket holders. VIP+Dinner ticket holders will be treated to an intimate keynote address by special guest Adam Gopnik.
So there you have it. It appears it’s Contemporary Calgary’s world, and we just live in it. Interested in seeing this event up close and personal? Visit: http://www.contemporarycalgary.com/whats-on/look2016
