The Aesthetics of Failure feature in Carbon Paper Mag


Carbon Paper, a new and emerging Toronto based arts and culture publication, released their first issue just last month. This initial issue was a long time coming and features writing and work by several local artists including fellow Xpace-er Amber Landgraff. There is also an article titled "glitter and glitch" that discusses Videofag as a cultural institution and explores the glitch/art show that I curated and organized in the Spring of 2013 titled "The Aesthetics of Failure". Despite the few errors - misspelling of my name and the title of the show and a mixup in the description of Lauren Helena-Pelc McArthur's work, it is a well written and thoughtful article. Always nice to get a shout out in an emeriging artist-run publication! Oh, and it's free!
