Canadian Art defies odds to celebrate 25 successful years
TORONTO, Sept. 14 /CNW/ - In the midst of a recession that has widely affected the Canadian publishing industry, Canadian Art is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a brand new format and editorial package. Canadian Art is published by a not-for-profit charitable organization and is the most widely read visual art magazine in Canada's history.
Newly redesigned in a sharp, clean, wider format, Canadian Art's 25th anniversary fall issue includes Newsfront, for the inside track on Canadian art news; Faces & Places, which focuses on a must-know artist, collector or curator; and Survey, the new preview section that highlights events from across the country including a pick by one of Canada's art-world professionals. "The plan is to produce a magazine that's in synch with the weekly updates of our website, canadianart.ca," says Rhodes.
The anniversary issue focuses on the future, with profiles of ten artists to watch: Montreal-based video artist Adad Hannah, photo and video artist Kelly Richardson, Glasgow-based installation artist Corin Sworn, Vancouver conceptualist Gareth Moore, California-based Toronto installation artist Jed Lind, conceptual installation duo Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins, Montreal sculptor Valerie Blass and the mixed media artist-collaborators Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby.
The Canadian Art Foundation is delighted to announce the Canadian Art Futures Fund, a new fundraising initiative that focuses on editorial enrichment. Money raised through the campaign will make it possible to engage the finest writers and photographers in new projects for Canadian Art's readers.
"The Canadian Art Futures Fund enhances the culture of Canada as a whole," says Michael de Pencier, co-founder of the Canadian Art Foundation. "It opens channels for conversations between all of our nation's regions and interests."
The magazine will be available on newsstands September 15.
Media interview opportunities are available with Richard Rhodes, editor, Canadian Art magazine and Melony Ward, publisher. Photo/video opportunities are also available.
