Art-School Art Shows: A Video of a TO Example

Barrow, Tapper & Balcaen: Picture of a School-Art exhibition from Canadian Art on Vimeo.

So Canadian Art's Winter print edition on art schools is hitting newsstands across the country. And as a writer for it, I can assertively say that there's plenty of stuff on art school that's not in it. That's why, as an editor for their website, I tried to put some additional material online. One of the things, for example, that intrigued me but that I didn't get to explore in print is the increasing number of art shows about art schools. This video, made in collaboration with Toronto curator Jennifer Cherniack, explores her thoughts on a related InterAccess exhibition from earlier this fall. It's about 7 minutes long, and focuses on alumni from the University of Manitoba.

UPDATE: Vimeo seems to be running really slowly today at times... hopefully it will be fixed soon!
