Newspaper to avoid


The Gazette in their infinite wisdom, decided to publish an article called Faces to Watch where they “asked our entertainment writers to choose two artists each to profile and tell our readers why we think they’re going to have high-profile a year in 2005.” And while I have nothing against any of the writers or the artists chosen, I think it is absolutely reprehensible that they give the “Circus Arts” a nod, but somehow manage to completely avoid anything that could even be remotely considered the Visual Arts.

For those who want to avoid the aformentioned newspaper, here’s the list of non-visual artists that were chosen, along with their chooser:
Maxime Denommee – Gaetan L. Charlebois
Anne Dorval – Gaetan L. Charlebois
Jacynthe Lague – John Griffin
Noemi Yelle – John Griffin
Charles-Mathieu Brunelle – Kathryn Greenaway
Normand Latourelle – Kathryn Greenaway
Mary Vingoe – Matt Radz
Wajdi Mouawad – Matt Radz
Taima – Bernard Perusse
Jonas – Bernard Perusse
Mariko Kida – Victor Swoboda
Dave St. Pierre – Victor Swoboda
The Arcade Fire – Jordan Zivitz
Pony Up! – Jordan Zivitz
Arctic – T’cha Dunlevy
Creature – T’cha Dunlevy
Andree Watters – Brendan Kelly
Matthew Harbour – Brandan Kelly

Also, someone should mention to the Gazette, that it isn’t such a hot idea to have a reporter writing about a “Face to Watch” who has also been hired by the same reporter to perform.
