Closed doors for Canadians abroad, Icarus
gets airborne, Molson's golden rules for public art, the Vancouver Art Gallery keeps its head and an update on the Montreal museum-go-round.
Previews of exhibitions at Expo and elsewhere on our western shores, Riopelle at Gallery Moos, General Idea hits the road and China in Regina.
In praise of exhibition catalogues, a massive study of Impressionism, a Harold Rosenberg collection, lives of female Surrealists and Avedon's anguished annals of the American West.
