On Newsstands and Online Now: Spring 2012


POSTED: MARCH 15, 2012

Canadian Art’s latest issue hits newsstands and tablets across the country this week with features, reviews and news on Canadian artists both up-and-coming and legendary. Issue highlights include:

  • • Award-winning journalist Sarah Scott’s in-depth feature on IAIN BAXTER&, which traces the 75-year-old artist’s many evolutions and explorations, including his influence on European artists.

  • • Critic Sarah Milroy’s cover-story interview with Denise Markonish, curator of one of the largest, yet least predictable, contemporary Canadian art exhibitions ever: MASS MoCA’s “Oh, Canada,” opening May 27 in North Adams, Massachusetts.

  • • Canadian Museum of Civilization curator Lee-Ann Martin’s Q&A with Rebecca Belmore, which focuses on a powerful theme and material in her work—the blanket.

  • • Vancouver writer Danielle Egan’s reflection on the work of internationally renowned artist Ken Lum, in which Lum reveals some of the deep struggles he’s had with the art system.

  • • Toronto curator Leah Turner’s studio visit with Los Angeles–based Canadian painter Monique Mouton; critic Peter Goddard’s feature on the major William Kurelek survey currently touring the nation; Vancouver author Hadani Ditmars’ look at nomadic Toronto artist Abbas Akhavan; Toronto critic Daniel Baird’s feature on New Jersey–based Canadian artist Ève K. Tremblay; and much more!

Online, there’s even more to see, including a portfolio of works by Akhavan; a supplementary BAXTER& array; a slideshow of Rebecca Belmore’s blanket-themed works; views of Ken Lum’s latest pieces; and a recap of our recent must-read online exclusives.

As the weather warms, it’s a better time than ever to get out to the galleries using Canadian Art and as your guide. Pick up a copy at your favourite retailer now, or visit our print subscriptions or digital subscriptions pages to get Canadian Art delivered directly to you each season.
