Title: QUIET 展览主题:空灵

Visual Artist: Zuo-Peng Zhang 视觉艺术家:张作鹏

Exhibition dates: April 1 – June 30, 2023

About the exhibition: During the 2020 lockdowns, visual artist Zou-Peng Zhang documented the emptiness of Calgary streets and businesses. As Calgarians return to a sense of normalcy, the photos serve as an ethereal, other-worldly reminder of a period that brought great change to our lives, work and even entertainment.

Zhang also hopes it will serve as a reminder, as COVID-19 still exists and continues to mutate, that we learned to adapt and cope with extreme change once and are capable of doing it again.

In the process of human development, difficulty and disaster are unavoidable, but with a healthy and peaceful mind, we can face and solve any problem.
