RELATED STORIES

  • Derek Sullivan

    Derek Sullivan’s exhibition “Albatross Omnibus”—the Power Plant’s 2011 commission—was inspired by the history of the artist’s book, an art form that arose in the 1960s and 70s in conjunction with conceptual art. In this article from the Winter 2012 issue of Canadian Art, Bill Clarke reviews the show, which suggests both the liberations of intellect and the burdens of physicality.

  • John Currin

    John Currin made his name by challenging core beliefs of postwar avant-garde American art—among them, the belief that the art of the past had nothing to teach the present; that commerce was evil; and that the male artist should avert his prurient gaze from naked women. In this article from our Winter 2012 issue, Gillian MacKay reviews his fascinating 2011 survey at DHC/ART in Montreal.

  • Jack Chambers: Victoria Hospital

    Victoria Hospital, a painting by Jack Chambers, is a careful (and in retrospect, perhaps haunting) portrayal of the London, Ontario, institution where Chambers was eventually diagnosed with leukemia. In this brief feature from our Winter 2012 issue, curator Dennis Reid reveals the evolution of the piece, which was co-initiated with another famed London artist, Greg Curnoe.

  • Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller: Black Birds

    New York critic Joseph R. Wolin heads to the Park Avenue Armory where Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller are creating a buzz (and other sounds) at the US premiere of a dark, nightmarish installation originally created for the 2008 Biennale of Sydney.

  • Grange Prize 2012: Hot Shots

    One of Canada’s largest cash-value art prizes—$65,000 in total with $50,000 going to the winner, $5,000 to three runners-up—announced its finalists this week. Take in their wide-ranging works in this slideshow.

  • Wanda Koop: Into the Woods

    A visit to Wanda Koop’s cabin near Riding Mountain National Park in southern Manitoba proves intriguing for Vancouver critic Robin Laurence. There, Laurence writes, Koop bridges old Grey Owl myths with a new series of paintings on our increasingly digital culture.

  • Brad Tinmouth: Survival Strategies

    The basement of an art gallery may seem an unlikely place to create an emergency shelter. However, Xpace's lower gallery is an ideal setting for Brad Tinmouth's “If Times Get Tough or Even If They Don't,” which evokes a cold-war bunker.

  • Wim Delvoye: Blame it on Paris

    Silk-covered pigs, lattice-cut car tires and a tattooed man are just a few of the works that Belgian artist Wim Delvoye has shuttled into the old, Gothic wing of the Louvre this summer. Jill Glessing reviews, finding a terrific amalgam of high and low.
