Cat and Jonathan are excited to announce their upcoming group exhibition at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie, Alberta. They will be exhibiting alongside artists Pippin Barr and Sandee Moore in Video Games? Art and Technology, curated by Manar Abo Touk. The exhibition opens Thursday, October 6th 2022 and will run until January 23, 2023. 

Cat and Jonathan will be exhibiting their Assassin’s Creed Art History series, which includes previously self-published game essays Gameworkers and Guildworkers (2020) and the premier of Blindspot (2021) and Crowd Control (2022). All projects will be made available online after the opening through SpekWork’s page. 

For the exhibition opening, Jonathan will be demonstrating a new music creation software he is developing for the Oculus Quest. This completely inscrutable, interactive, and improvised performance is not to miss!
