HATCH

In this 40th Anniversary issue of Visual Arts News there is a focus on The New Nova Scotia, where young painters like Waka Okabayashi commune with flowers, connecting with them as though they’re sentient beings; Artists pick up where their parent’s generation left off, staging their utopian dreams for living together better on this planet on Cape Breton Island; Lou Sheppard transforms the spaces between words in a diagnostic text listing criteria for gender dysphoria into bursts of dance, recoding them as queer spaces; and Ursula Johnson’s work appears like a an ad-style intervention.

Highlights include:

  • Q&A with Lou Sheppard
  • Conversation: Sister Visions with Pamela Edmonds, Rebecca Fisk, Lucie Chan, Kim Cain + Chris Shapones
  • Profile: Ursula Johnson vs. Everyday Cultural Appropriation
  • Emily Vey Duke’s Dark Optimism
  • Conversation: Beyond the Island with Amish Morell, Erik Moskowitz + Amanda Trager
  • Profile: JJ Lee deconstructs Chinese-Canadian Identities

PLUS
Feature on Waka Okabayashi’s I want to be a plant by Kathleen Higgins; Yorodeo maps inner worlds by Walter Muschenheim; The Magic Project talks to Sally Raab-Wolchyn, Alexandra McCurdy and Joanna Close navigate the intersection between art + craft.
