Derek Michael Besant is an artist, curator, and writer based in Calgary. Besant has completed substantial public commissions in Canada and around the world.
Fifteen Restless Nights is Besant's exploration of the nuances found in the interior spaces of motel rooms. His work reflects and synchronizes ordinary objects and the invisible world around us.

Fifteen Restless Nights is shown alongside Survivors , a collection of work by Besant's life and work partner, Alexandra Haeseker. Survivors and Fifteen Restless Nights are part of Synchronous II, a festival of art and life, promoted by The Public Foundation for Art and Life. This exhibition was curated by Ania Sleczkowska, founding director of the Foundation.

View the exhibition at the Visual Arts Alberta Gallery until October 18, 2013. Please join us for a special concert event on Saturday, October 5 beginning at 2 pm with Elizabeth Koch on flute and Murray Vaasjo on violin. The gallery is open from Wed-Fri from 10-4 pm and Sat from 12-4. The gallery will be closed on October 12.
