The Dope Show: Arts news by Sue Carter Flinn
“Buzz on Busby”
The Coast, May 30, 2008

Always on the move, artist Cathy Busby is once again giving Halifax international presence. On June 12, she leaves for a group show at Aberdeen’s Peacock Visual Arts (curated by the lovely Milena Placentile), where she’ll install a next-generation version of 24/7 at Work, a show she did at Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery in 2005, where she displayed management textbooks together with products such as deodorants, toothpastes and energy drinks that were labelled “High Endurance,” “36 Hour Power!” and “Powerful Thirst Relief.” From there, the artist, along with Saint Mary’s University Art Gallery director **Robin Metcalfe**, will head to Sydney, Australia, for Sorry, which focuses on the pervasiveness of public apologies (recently Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd apologized to the “Stolen Generations” of that country’s indigenous population) and a panel discussion with William Kentridge, as part of the Sydney Biennale. Then she heads to Melbourne for a show of her apology wall-texts paintings. That’s quite the passport stamp.
