The Beaverbrook Art Gallery and the Marion McCain Exhibition of Contemporary Atlantic Art are pleased to announce the launch of a new visual arts journal dedicated to Atlantic Canadian culture.
BILLIE: Undercurrents in Atlantic Canadian Visual Culture is going to print for Fall 2015, in conjunction with the re-launch of the Marion McCain Exhibition of Contemporary Atlantic Art. Taking its name from the late Marion McCain, whose lifelong nickname was “Billie,” the journal will explore what is below the surface of contemporary art in Atlantic Canada and the diverse and complex narratives flowing from the region’s particular histories, peoples and landscape.
Editorial is seeking article ideas for the inaugural issue, “The Language of Landscape,” from a variety of perspectives in a variety of forms, such as interviews, written essays and photographic essays. Those interested in contributing should submit short summaries (250 words) of their content ideas to the editorial committee via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1, 2015.
