Canadian Art doesn't even get respect in Canada


Sarah Mailroy falls over herself in today's Globe and Mail gushing about Candice Breitz. Leading with the sentence "One of the top picks of last summer's Venice Biennale was the multichannel DVD installation Mother/Father by South African artist Candice Breitz."

Umm, Ms. Milroy, wouldn't it have been nice if you had at least mentioned in passing, that Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Toronto artists in your neck of the woods have been doing similar stuff for the past five years? Or Marc Couroux's Rockford Keep on Rolling? Not quite as local, being from Montreal, but as applicable.

And to think, that the Canadian entry in the Venice Biennale was Rebecca Bellmore. Man, once again, juries know jack.
