COVER PROFILE: Meagan Musseau reclaims the landscape by Craig Francis Power

UNKNOWN LANDS

The artists in this issue inspire us to examine our relationships with nature and, in turn, to better know ourselves, to explore our own unknown lands. New Zealand artist Mark Harvey critiques traditional approaches to landscape painting in his public performances. Charlotte Wilson-Hammond invites us to tune into our connection to the landscape, referring to is as “a body” itself. For artists like Susan Wood, who passed away early this year, the natural world served as a source of self-recognition and discovery. In this issue we’re reminded of how the forces of nature shape our lives, as well as the things we shed and gain as we drift through life.

Highlights include:

  • Q&A: Tracing rivers + stories with Carrie Allison
  • In Memoriam: Susan Wood
  • Profile: Soheila Esfahani’s portable culture
  • News: The impact of the Identify Festival
  • Review: Between sacred + profane: Kaashif Ghanie & Nicholas Rosin
  • Q&A: Charlotte Wilson-Hammond on what we leave behind
  • Review: Blue Rocks: Gerald Ferguson, Marsden Hartley + John Hartman
  • Q&A: Don’t listen to me: Mark Harvey

With a special farewell to our Editor, Lizzy Hill who has been with Visual Arts News for over seven years. Learn more about our New Editor: Shannon Webb-Campbell.
