Volume 35, Number 1

March 2016

With her photographs, Angela Grauerholz is dreamy and clear-eyed at once. Her interview, “The Canvas of Photography,” appears in this issue, and the photo on the cover is hers. Fred Wilson’s interview, “Degrees of Subversion” is replete with his subtle and at the same time searing perceptions about the institutional entrenchment of racism.

The articles in this issue come at things slant – to borrow from poet Emily Dickinson – but in the way that artists always are – they are spot on. Climate change; our abusive self-serving treatment of animals; the way in which public institutions address only some of the public; and more on photography. As well as the interview with Angela Grauerholz, winner of the 2015 Scotiabank Photography Award, there is a piece on the post photographic condition evidenced everywhere but most specifically at Montréal’s Mois de la Photo, and in Michael Campbell’s portfolio “The Roads Are on Fire.”

Also: Marcel Dzama and the New York City Ballet. Vigée Le Brun: Paris, New York, Ottawa. Karl Mattson: David; oil and gas: Goliath. Ian August’s Baghdad Plunder and loot. Reviews of Tim Gardner, Landon Mackenzie, Patrick Bernatchez, Aleksandra Domanović, Julian Barnes, Angela Grossmann & Drew Shaffer, Martin Golland, Derek Dunlop and many others.
