I was honored to be selected as one of the finalists for the ACAC writing fellowship. Part of the last round of the application is to write what they call a ‘Shotgun Review’ of about 400 words. I traveled to Montreal to see a group show Like Thunder out of China. The show is in the recently opened Arsenal Montreal an incredible space with a great and very helpful staff. The review can be found here.
I am looking forward to seeing the show again here in Toronto, it is set to open in late Aug 2013–This summer is shaping up to be contemporary Chinese art central in Toronto. Ai Weiwei at the AGO and this show at Toronto Arsenal. Very excited to see this happening in Toronto, overdue in my opinion, but better late than never!
