It’s always a joy hear an artist speak about his or her own work. Whether proud, derisive, or ambivalent, their words offer an insight unmatchable by any school of art criticism. Luckily, the National Gallery of Canada was able to sit down with Toronto artist Michael Snow and ask him about his pieces, In the Way and The Viewing of Six New Works (above). The video below is a fascinating look at an artist who, despite his established fame, continues to produce compelling work. Download the ACI’s Michael Snow: Life and Work by Martha Langford here
