Marcel Dzama, Guy Maddin, and Kent Monkman are among the many Winnipeg artists who have gone on to enjoy stellar international careers. Winnipeg itself has earned a worldwide reputation as an art producing centre, with more artists per capita than any other Canadian city. The singularity of Winnipeg's artistic character has been celebrated as far away as Paris. Published to commemorate the Gallery's centennial, this entirely original publication documents one-time only reunion of twelve artists, many of whom have brought new work. Three original essays and twelve in-depth interviews evoke the environment that has shaped the city's artistic heritage, showing that place can be a factor more powerful than the distinctions between style, medium and ideology.The artists: KC Adams, Daniel Barrow, Paul Butler, Shawna Dempsey and Lori Millan, Michael Dudeck, Marcel Dzama, Sarah Anne Johnson, Rodney Latourelle, Guy Maddin, Kent Monkman, Dominique Rey, Jennifer Stillwell.
