On Newsstands & Online Now: Canadian Art Spring 2011

The Spring 2011 issue of Canadian Art hits newsstands across the country this week, featuring a wide range of articles on art-world movers and shakers, from national to international, contemporary to historical.

Highlights of the issue include:

• Vancouver writer Danielle Egan’s engaging profile on Myfanwy MacLeod, whose sweetly foreboding The Birds sculpture was commissioned by the City of Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Public Art Program.

Daniel Baird’s feature on New York painter, filmmaker and all-around big personality Julian Schnabel, who spent last fall in Toronto, opening a survey at the Art Gallery of Ontario and premiering a film at the Toronto International Film Festival.

• Canadian Art Writing Prize–winner Pandora Syperek’s feature on Sobey Art Award–nominee Brendan Fernandes as he anticipates a fall show at New York gallery Art in General.

Sarah Milroy’s visit with sculptor and installation-artist Brian Jungen in Vancouver, where he prepares for a show at Catriona Jeffries that bridges discourses of the art world and the Doig River First Nation in northern B.C.

• Art historian Roald Nasgaard’s riveting examination of Quebec’s Automatistes’ tricky relationship to the legacy of postwar abstraction.

• Contributing editor and recent Governor General’s Award–winning writer Nancy Tousley’s look at the careful, mysterious work of photographic artist Alison Rossiter.

Noah Becker’s interview with the craft-based artist Luanne Martineau.

Plus all the top-quality reviews, previews and news that you expect from every issue of Canadian Art.

The fun continues online, where you can find:
