Mass MoCA show shines light on Canadian artists
“Oh, Canada,” a survey of contemporary Canadian art that sprawls across large swaths of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams, is a revelation. The show includes 100 works by 65 artists, all of them selected by a non-Canadian, Brockton-born curator Denise Markonish. The exhibit is so surprising because Markonish made a great decision. She excluded Canada’s contemporary art superstars and chose instead to bring to light less established talent.
