Interview with Barbara Steinman

The Bridge on CBC Radio One
with Nantali Indongo

Montréal based visual artist, Barbara Steinman, is the recipient of the Prix Paul-Émile Borduas; the highest honour in culture and science from the government of Québec. She is recognized as one of the first women in video arts in Canada; and an artist who’s work reflects a deep concern for humanity. Barbara is a humble person but an important artist, so we’re grateful that she shared fantastic stories about the Vancouver and Montréal art scenes in the 1980’s. And we manage to learn just a little more about this otherwise private leader in the arts.
