WELCOME TO HELEN, GA.!

“They can truly kick me out in the middle of the night, from a hotel for giving a review of three and five?” Leger asked the police officer. “And he says, ‘yes, ma'am. It’s within the law.’” (Thanks to B&C)

Karen Kurczynski—Jorn on Functionalism as Totalitarian

Kurczynski, The Art and Politics of Asger Jorn p. 34—on "collective creativity" and the "open work" Given the context of Jorn's extra-painterly concerns in the early 1940s, the idea of openness implicit in the indeterminate compositional process also takes on social and political dimensions. Openness to the new would become one of Jorn's central artistic themes. He argues in Held og Hasard that curiosity about the new and unknown is the beginning of all aesthetic activity. Is this orientation ...

Target Number One review – gritty thriller about Canadian junkie caught in Thai sting

Antoine Olivier Pilon and Josh Hartnett are on good form as a heroin addict caught in police trap and the journalist who reports on the casePulpy, structurally a touch otiose, but eminently watchable throughout, this based-on-real-events crime drama tells two entwined stories. One is about a French-Canadian drug addict called Daniel Legér (Antoine Olivier Pilon, from Xavier Dolan’s Mommy), a stand-in for actual historical figure Alain Olivier, who becomes the entrapped fall guy for a disastrous ...

The time to enter the digital era is now!

We ran across an interesting CTV News article recently that talked about how COVID-19 is changing Canadians’ lifestyles. Referencing polling by market research firm Leger, the piece noted that, “the pandemic has acted as a springboard for the digital era.” First-timers on the digital frontier That’s probably not a surprise to anyone reading our blog. But something we found a bit more eye-popping from Leger’s Executive Vice President Christian Bourque was: Since the start of the pandemic, 55 ...

smarter networks through better narratives

Leadership in a networked world is making our networks and communities smarter so they are able to make better-informed decisions. In early 2020 New Brunswick’s Education Minister, Dominic Cardy, worked very hard to make his network smarter. “When Canada’s chief public health official, Dr. Theresa Tam, was talking about there being no need to “panic,” and raising alarms instead about the internet-wacko fringe targeting Canadians of Chinese descent with racist comments on social media in late Jan...

Is COVID-19 baby boom a myth? How relationships might be tested during the pandemic

CALGARY — As Canadians face the possibility of being alone with their significant other for the foreseeable future, some say marital discord is more likely than the kind of intimacy that would lead to a baby boom nine months from now.Disaster sometimes brings people closer together — pregnancy rates were up slightly following 9/11, and after the well documented power blackout in New York in 1977 the city experienced a small surge in the birthrate.But that's unlikely to happen here, says Tom...

An Interactive Social Network of Abstract Artists: Kandinsky, Picasso, Brancusi & Many More

Who's your favorite abstract artist? Some of us, if we like early abstraction, might name a painter like Wassily Kandinsky, some a composer like Arnold Schoenberg, some a poet like Guillaume Apollinaire, and some, even, a photographer like Alfred Stieglitz. When we answer a question like this, we tend to consider each artist, and each artist's body of work, in isolation. But when we talk about artistic movements, especially one overarching and influential as abstraction, all names, all painting...

How to Stay Healthy When You Travel to Mexico and the Caribbean

No one likes to get sick, especially while on a vacation away from home, even more so in a country where you don’t speak the language. Perhaps you’ve planned the holiday six months out, anticipating time on a beach, not beside a hotel room toilet. If you don’t get many vacation days, getting sick is even harder to stomach. Fortunately most food you eat is safe Is Canada a No Vacation Nation? As a Canadian I think of myself as lucky when it comes to vacation time. But if I look at a 2017 E...

Jerry Leger - Nonsense & Heartache

I had the good fortune of seeing Jerry Leger & The Situation live in Toronto recently. They have a strong local following for their regular gig at Castro's Lounge in the Beaches area of town. While guitarist and pedal steel player James McKie was not in attendance, the band plays well as a trio and it was  an excellent show. The band pulled heavily from Leger's most recent double album "Nonsense & Heartache," which I highly recommend. The album was produced by Cowboy Junkies guitarist M...

What Does It Mean If Everything Makes You Blush?

I hate being put on the spot in any group setting, because I know it's only a matter of seconds before the skin on my face will turn into a pinkish-red ombré — and not in a chic way. I blush pretty much whenever I have to interact with humans, and even times when I'm not at all embarrassed. If someone asks me about my relationship, compliments my shoes, or tells me that there's a period stain on my dress, I'm going to turn red. And the worst part is that once I feel my face get hot and prickly,...

'Spider-Man' Art Thief And Accomplices (Including The Guy Who Threw The Picasso In The Trash) Get Prison

Vjéran Tomic - nicknamed "Spider-Man" for the athletic way he executed the theft - stole paintings by Picasso, Matisse, Modigliani, Braque and Léger from the Musée d'art moderne de la ville de Paris in 2010. He, the instigator, and the fence each got multi-year jail terms and six-figure fines plus an order to reimburse the city for the €104 million the art is worth. (The fence - who claims he threw the paintings into the garbage when his home was raided - executed a memorably self-serving piece ...

How Ads Know People in the New Media Scene

Kelly Leger, Vice President of Publisher Solutions, Merkle Inc. In its relatively brief history, digital advertising has changed dramatically, and at such a dizzying rate, that many brands have struggled to keep pace.

America’s (One) Great Cubist

Robert Storr: “[Stuart] Davis was also the only first-class Cubist to emerge from North America. In my estimation he was the equal of the great Fernand Léger … I would even argue that, painting-by-painting, Davis was in some respects Léger’s superior.”
