Karen Whaley at Torontoist posted a truly stunning video by Robert Bateman. Deep deep down, everybody loves Modern Art!
Don't have a lot to say at the moment as my head is buried in prepping for a class debate on public vs. private funding structures for museums. What do you like better, governments or corporations? (heh)
Anyhow, since I'm doing an art history degree, I thought a little visual study on perspective might be appropriate. Remember how we got taught way back in school about how art got better and better as people figured out how to paint things so they looked like they receeded on the picture plane? Those were the days!

Rockonski announces the publication of RCMP, a book by Tonik Wojtyra, making it's debut this week in Halifax at the exhibition ERI:3 opening tonight and running March 13 - April 20, 2008 at Eye Level Gallery in Halifax, NS.
Tonik elucidates that "RCMP is result of research I've been doing about the RCMP specifically and part of a larger interest about national identity. The RCMP is a paradox: a police who does serious law enforcement but is simultaneously tricked out in colonial regalia, steeped in childish nostalgia, and so damn earnest. It's hard not to be enamored but it's hard to hold in the laughter too."
RCMP, by Tonik Wojtyra

A subject dear to my heart as we know that the RCMP's certain acts lead to the formation of CSIS who are hiring hiring more agents to keep track of laptops and briefcases
