Involving Us Again, for the First Time     By Rachel Palacios
In advance of the Yale University Art Gallery’s post-renovation and expansion opening on 12.12.12, we reconsider its core outstanding modernist collection built with passion by Katherine Dreier and her close adviser, Marcel Duchamp.

The Idea of North: Oh, Canada at MASS MoCA     By Kris Wilton
Curator Denise Markonish’s sampling of 100 works in all contemporary media by Canadian artists grandly proffers yet withholds a definition of “Canadianness” beyond ice hockey, maple trees, and the Queen.

Crossing the Pond: A Dispatch from London     By Christine Temin
In an art rather than Olympics race, entrepreneur and collector Charles Saatchi’s exhibitions in his eponymous Gallery achieve dominance in a city emerging as a contemporary art capital. Dispatch examines Saatchi’s contribution to the Central London art scene while still “laughing all the way to the bank.”

A New Regionalism?     By Christian Holland
In this investigation of the Boston gallery scene, “specific channels of commerce” are measured against those of other metropolitan centers. Boston’s creative capital—especially emerging artists and art students—remain
undervalued communities to be championed and retained in the region.
