Dee Gibson investigates how two prominent Canadian artists, Allyson Clay and Eliza Griffiths, negotiate women’s problematic relationship to representation. Audrey Nicoll follows a similar line of inquiry through Clara Gutsche’s photographs of Quebec convent life, and photographic self-portraits by Adrian Piper and Allyson Clay. Joanne Jefferson explores the envisagement of social dilemmas in portraits by Margaret Clarke, Rosalie Favell, and Aaron Anaïs Kimberly. Essays are accompanied by images, and are linked to relevant sites on the Internet. The Gallery welcomes your feedback on this new project.
It has been a pleasure to work with Deana Gibson, Joanne Jefferson, and Audrey Nicoll. I thank them for their commitment and enthusiasm through the editorial process. Much appreciation also goes to Mimi Fautley, who contributed valuable editorial suggestions and professional insight as editor of Arts Atlantic. I look forward to the continuing expansion of Working Title. Watch for forthcoming calls for proposals.
