On September 20, for the first time ever, Canadian Art webcast its Gallery Hop Toronto panel, making this program available to artists, writers, collectors, curators and students across the country as well as to a live, in-person audience at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Video documentation of this panel is now viewable by clicking on the Vimeo window above.
The Gallery Hop panel this year was a special one, since it was part of Canadian Art‘s 30th anniversary celebrations. Specifically, it focused on changes to art writing in Canada over the past 30 years that have elapsed since Canadian Art began publishing in Fall 1984.
Panellists included critic and past editor of Canadian Art Sarah Milroy, as well as critics Sky Goodden and Gabrielle Moser. Collectively, these writers have contributed to publications including the Globe and Mail, Artinfo, Artforum, Fillip, Modern Painters, Esse, and many other outlets. Richard Rhodes, editor of Canadian Art since 1996—as well as founding editor of C Magazine, which also began publication in 1984—moderated the roundtable discussion.
Livetweets of the panel at @canartca were posted as well.
