On Newsstands & Online This Week: Canadian Art Summer 2012

Cover of Canadian Art’s Summer 2012 issue featuring Jeff Wall’s 2010 work Boy falls from tree

Canadian Art’s latest issue hits newsstands and tablets across the country this week with a range of features on the theme of exhibition making. Issue highlights include:


• Daniel Baird’s lively feature on dOCUMENTA (13) artistic director Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, whose unconventional approach to this edition of the quinquennial event includes calling her roster of international curators “agents” and spreading exhibitions over four continents.

• Critic Sarah Milroy’s thoughtful cover story on Jeff Wall’s “The Crooked Path” show in Santiago de Compostela in Spain, for which he collaborated with Belgian curator Joël Benzakin to pair his works with those of some 60 historical and contemporary artists.

• Art Gallery of Ontario curator Gerald McMaster’s comprehensive meditation on the scheme for the 18th Biennale of Sydney, co-curated with Catherine de Zegher and opening June 27.

• Galerie de l’UQAM director Louise Déry on preparations for an exciting new exhibition on Canadian painting, “Le Project Peinture/The Painting Project.”

•Toronto critic and author R.M. Vaughan’s profile on charismatic Canadian expat Ingrid Z’s London, UK, gallery; Adam Lauder’s intriguing interview with influential Toronto museums consultant Barry Lord; curator Jon Davies on the cheeky work of interdisciplinary artist Oliver Husain; and much more!


Online, there’s even more to see, including a slideshow of works from dOCUMENTA (13); an expanded view of Jeff Wall’s “The Crooked Path”; a look at Oliver Husain’s film and installation projects; and a recap of our recent must-read online exclusives.
