Will Anybody Visit Saskatoon’s New $85 Million Museum?

“Saskatoon is not where most people expect to find a stockpile of work by one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century. For that matter, Saskatoon is not where one expects to come across an institution like the Remai Modern. The museum is huge—130,000 square feet of open galleries, soaring windows, and broad foyers wrapped up in an ultra-modern glass-and-copper-mesh exterior. The four-storey building feels as though it’s been plucked from a cultural capital like Toronto or Chicago or London and dropped on the west bank of the South Saskatchewan River.”

Daniel Viola – The Walrus – February 2018
