Whenever a genie comes out of a bottle, always ask for perfect timing. Canadian Art magazine certainly seems to have it, with its fall 2010 cover image and cover story inside by Sarah Milroy on uber-photographer Edward Burtynsky and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
This is particularly so as Burtynsky has been named the recipient of the biennial MOCCA award in contemporary art from the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art. It will be presented to him at a gala event on April 14, 2011 at MOCCA in Toronto. Each guest will receive a limited edition artwork created especially to mark the event.
