#CdnCult Times; Volume 1, Edition 5


They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”
― Andy Warhol,

This week we present an eclectic triad of works all of which are connected through change and our response to it as artists.  Seasonal, societal and technological change is constant, and it seems to be occurring at an increasingly faster pace.

How malleable should we be in the face of these winds? How does once bend and not break? Or is it better not to frame our response as a form of resistance and become the wind itself?

These questions and more are addressed tangentially and directly in this edition. As always, if you have any thoughts, our comments section is open and these pieces are ready to be changed by your interaction with them.
