Better art reporting in Dolbeau-Mistassini than in Montreal


I've long since stopped reading Voir for their art reporting. But now it has officially become ridiculous downright horrifying. Two articles; one in Voir on the Femmes artistes, la conquête d'un espace, 1900-1965 exhibit at the Musée d'art de Joliette is 295 words long - or barely enough for the title, the name of the museum, curator and some of the artists. The second article is on an exhibit of the 40 most recent paintings by Harold Savard in Dolbeau-Mistassini, it is 87% longer.
