2. Material Issue and Other Matters at Canada
If there's an old standby in Manhattan for "gritty" art, Canada's it. Material Issue included artists Jess Fuller, Robert Janitz, Suzanne Goldenberg, Lauren Luloff, Leif Ritchey and Josh Blackwell and featured old shopping bags, torn and painted cloth, wobbly canvas structures and what appeared to be paper caked onto the surface of a stretcher. Definitely gritty.
