An online supplement to Canadian Art’s Art Schools issue, in print Winter 2008
Canadian Art’s not the only organization interested in how art schools are doing these days. 2008 has seen a wealth of conferences, panels and exhibitions on the matter. Some of these, like a gathering of heavyweights in Faenza, Italy, are reported on by Eldon Garnet in the Winter 2008 issue of Canadian Art. Others, like the Art schools Anatomies project, continue to evolve online via the University of Manitoba. Here, Canadian Art Online offers a look at one recent exhibition that focused on art school production, “Beatrice’s Centre for Student Affairs, or How I Learned my Mother was Right About Making Art in a Prairie Town during the Rise and Fall of Grunge Music,” curated by Jennifer Cherniack for InterAccess in Toronto. The show was on exhibit from September 26 to November 22, 2008. In this video, Cherniack speaks to Leah Sandals about what drove her interest in art schools for this show.
