The NEW Volume 8, No 2 features our first Columnist, David Garneau, with his thought provoking questioning of the terms "indigenization" and "apology" ("Indigenization and Its Opposite, Indigenization"). Expect more destination reading from David in future issues of Rungh.

Author, actor, playwright (and CBC Canada Reads 2012 winner), Carmen Aguirre takes aim at "cancel culture" in her thought provoking comments, "Solidaridad: Reflections on Repair, Reassemble, and Reunite".

Rungh is committed to covering the Canadian visual art scene and in this issue features reviews of Divya Mehra at the MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina); Jin-me Yoon at Truck Gallery/ M:ST Performative Art (Mohkinstsis/Calgary); and Nicole Neidhardt, Lacie Burning, Chandra Melting Tallow, and Whess Harmon at Open Space (Songhees and Esquimalt Nations/Victoria).

The Rungh Archives continue to grow with a soon to be announced artist residency program. In the meantime, flip through the pages of the Rungh Magazine (print archive) from 1992 to 2000, with our new reader app.
