With a background in industrial and graphic design, and sculpture Bernd Hildebrandt plans exhibit spaces, designs display furniture and installs exhibitions that integrate objects, images and words. Working as an independent exhibit designer he has designed a number of extensive object based exhibits including: Edgar Degas: the Figure in Motion, Art Gallery of Alberta, Discovering Dinosaurs, for University of Alberta Museums and various exhibits (2007 – 2017) showcasing Chinese robes and scroll paintings from The Mactaggart Art Collection, University of Alberta. An interest in writing poetry has sparked numerous collaborations with Liz Ingram in which his poems are integrated into the fabric of her often large-scale images and prints. Working together has been very productive and has resulted in: temporary installations (2011-2018) in Poland, Germany, Argentina, Edmonton; permanent installations at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (April 2011); and gallery exhibitions at the Glenbow Museum (2011), the Chelsea Art Museum in New York (2012), FAB Gallery, Edmonton (2017)and ‘ace AIR Gallery, Buenos Aires, Argentina, (2018). www.hilxing.com
