Essay for Gallery 44's The Slow Gaze


Mixed in with all of the Nuit Blanche one-night-only madness are those first September/October shows of the art season that happen to be all-nighting it as well. I wrote an essay for one of these, The Slow Gaze, which opened at Gallery 44 last Thursday. The essay is available in a nice full-colour brochure at the gallery. Since it's a co-pro with Centre VU in Quebec City, the text has also been translated into French -- my first translation!

One of the best things about writing the essay was finding out about Paul LaCroix, a 78-year-old Quebec artist whose work (seen above) feels as fresh as anything coming out of UQAM today.
