Roald Nasgaard asks some questions


The dude who curated the exhibit The Automatiste Revolution: Montreal 1941–1960 two years ago writes a hefty essay in the most recent issue of Canadian Art magazine that wanders all over the place asking why Quebecois (and by extension Canadian) art gets such short shrift in every other country in the world except Canada.

Unfortunately he doesn't have any answers, and in certain places it sounds like he's complaining that his show didn't have a more significant impact.
