The Gorgeous Molecule and the Gorgeous Libation combines with Temporary Gallery of Lasting Impressions were another exciting Beakerhead compilation taking place in Calgary’s historic Barron Building with 2 events and 2 art activations over the five day festival.
Two nights of New York-esque warehouse parties partnering with chefs and mixologists to treat guests to gourmet indulgences from some of Calgary’s best culinary masters. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore Calgary’s first skyscraper as the backdrop to a fascinating blend of art, science and engineering.
- The Gorgeous Molecule – Blending the science of modernist cuisine with an evocative art experience in the historic Barron Building – an archetype of art moderne architecture – this food experience will be an encounter with the sublime.
- The Gorgeous Libations – This one night only, pop-up cocktail bar is the perfect place to mingle and explore the history and the future of (human) energy. The bar is stocked with whimsical Absolut concoctions and a special Big Rock beer – Beakerhead edition.
- Temporary Gallery of Lasting Impressions – Its doors were locked for years, but thanks to Strategic Group, Calgary’s historic Barron Building is coming back to life as an engineering backdrop for contemporary art. This abandoned building housed installations by Caitland Brown & Wayne Garrett and Peter William Holden which were open to the public for the entire Beakerhead festival week
