"Border Crossings is a quarterly cultural magazine edited and published in Winnipeg. A local, international magazine, it has been published continuously since 1977. Edited by Meeka Walsh, it investigates contemporary culture through a combination of articles, reviews, interviews and portfolios of photographs and drawings. More curated than edited, Border Crossings occupies a vital place in the geographic centre of the North American continent. The magazine is committed to Northrop Frye's sense that the centre is where you are, and so we take Winnipeg as the place from which we begin looking at the culture and art of the world.
Border Crossings does what its name says. It crosses the borders where one art form moves into another; where art and architecture intersect; where video reflects film; where painting continues its talk with photography; where fiction and poetry work their continual reinvention of language.
We are interested in the places where one art meets another; we like being between things, and we find the edge when the art we're looking at takes us there.
Our focus is the art of writing and the act of talking. Border Crossings is recognized for the quality and clarity of its criticism and for the richness and insight of its interviews. Each issue contains a lengthy review section, in which exhibitions, books, performances and events from around the world are treated to significant reviews. Every issue includes "Artist's Pages", a three to five page section where a selected artist constructs a small visual world. These pages appear unannounced and nuanced".
