Border Crossings' first ever Winnipeg Issue, THE LARGEST ISSUE TO DATE, devotes over 200 pages to some of the most prolific and accomplished contemporary artists who call Winnipeg home, with a cover created for us by Marcel Dzama.

The Winnipeg Issue features a revealing interview with Sarah Anne Johnson, whose current project was inspired by a family story involving medical abuse, survival and the CIA. The issue also includes interviews with Jon Pylypchuk, Jennifer Stillwell and Theo Sims.

In this issue we have an unpublished film script, My (Other) Winnipeg: Excerpts from a Phantom Film by Guy Maddin. My (Other) Winnipeg follows the international success of his self-mythologizing film, My Winnipeg, which won the best Canadian film at the Toronto International Film Festival, the opening night selection at the Berlin Film Festival's Forum and acclaim world wide.

Like Maddin, Marcel Dzama continues to create work full of mythology and fantasy and uses Winnipeg as muse for his latest sculptural project. This issue also features lengthy articles on the varied practices of Michael Dumontier, Paul Butler, realist painters Karel Funk and Tim Gardner, artist collective Send + Receive and many others!

Art Pages feature embossed works by artist Paul Robles from his Playground Martyrs series, his debut engagement with a new medium.

In addition, our Crossovers section features reviews on the recent works of: Janet Werner, Martha Langford, Simon Starling, Ron Moppett and Carol Wainio, Gregor Schneider, the Quebec Triennial, one KRAZY! exhibition and much more!

Now in its second quarter century, Border Crossings: A Magazine of the Arts, is published quarterly in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. BORDER CROSSINGS is Edited by Meeka Walsh. The interviews, a noted feature in every issue, are by Contributing Editor Robert Enright.
