In the Spring 2012 issue of Canadian Art, critic Sarah Milroy interviews Denise Markonish, the MASS MoCA curator who has spent the last three years organizing “Oh, Canada,” a massive exhibition of Canadian art. The show, which opens on May 26, 2012, and runs until April 1, 2013, features more than 60 artists who hail from every province and nearly every territory in the country, spanning multiple generations and working in all media. It promises to be a treat for all patriotic Canuck art-lovers, but Canadian Art readers get a special preview in this portfolio drawn from the largest-ever American exhibition (and possibly largest-ever exhibition, period) of contemporary Canadian art and artists.

Artists in the show include Kim Adams, Gisele Amantea, Shuvinai Ashoona, Amalie Atkins, Nicolas Baier, Daniel Barrow, Dean Baldwin, Rebecca Belmore, Patrick Bernatchez, BGL, Valérie Blass, Shary Boyle, Bill Burns, Eric Cameron, Cedar Tavern Singers AKA Les Phonoréalistes, Janice Wright Cheney, Douglas Coupland, Ruth Cuthand, Dave and Jenn, Michel de Broin, Wally Dion, Mario Doucette, Marcel Dzama, Brendan Fernandes, Michael Fernandes, Eryn Foster, Noam Gonick and Luis Jacob, Hadley + Maxwell, David R.
