Selections from Oh, Canada at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art

In the September 2012 issue of The Walrus, Jolyon Helterman reviewed the largest exhibition of Canadian art ever mounted outside the country: the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art’s Oh, Canada. Here, the magazine presents a selection of artworks from the show, which is open through April 1, 2013. We think you should go see it.
