  • Dealer Wil Kucey of Le Gallery talks about his hot young artists and his prescient interest in illustrative, grafitti and street art
  • Dealer Pat Feheley discusses the new Inuit art. It’s not soapstone sculptures of bears anymore, since Annie Pootoogook’s drawings were included in the last Documenta in Kassel, Germany.
  • Artist Kim Dorland welcomes us into his studio as he talks about his influences, his recent work and how he hopes the viewer responds to his paintings.

  • Curator Barbara Fischer won her bid to take London-based Canadian film artist Mark Lewis to next year’s Venice Biennale as Canada’s representative. (VoCA anticipated this – HERE) She discusses what it means to be a Canadian artist today.

    Ooooooh…. How can I call myself an editor when I spell “Kathie” as “Katie” and I even interviewed her myself?
    For dictionary-owning shame!
    Apologies, Katie!
    And thanks again, Andrea.
    Best, L
