Atwood at the McMichael Gallery

For those of you in Ontario, the McMichael Gallery is hosting an exhibit of Margaret Atwood's Journals of Susanna Moodie, in collaboration with Charles Pratcher, who illustrated a 1980s edition of the poems.

I am not quite ready to delve into Margaret Atwood, but this exhibit was a nice introduction, plus the McMichael is always worth a visit.

  1. I am not a big fan of Atwood's, but I thought that installation was interesting and well curated.

    In particular, the use of video and having Atwood read her poems aloud, while being surrounded by the poems and paintings in question, was an interesting juxtaposition.

    I think that as artists, writers, and other creative types explore the possibilities afforded by the internet and computers we might get to see more exhibits that mix media like this.
