In order to keep up with the times we will now be using our YouTube channel much more frequently. Here we will be conducting artist interviews, recordings of artist talks, as well as performances. We have also started to favourite past videos of exhibitions, performances and events that have taken place at or in conjunction with the Inc. so be sure to follow along with those here. Lastly, continuing on with our “Love Your Artist-Run Centre” campaign from Open Streets Hamilton, artist interviews will include questions concerning the importance of artist-run centres, as well as what makes them unique from varying perspectives.

If you have any other ideas of things we should include on our YouTube channel be sure to let us know at:

Our first artist interview in this series was with Christopher Healey, regarding his exhibition MEXICO ii


On June 29th 2013 the Inc.’s Programming Assistant Caitlin Sutherland and Gallery Assistant Samantha Roketta interviewed  artist Christopher Healey on the exhibition Mexico ii in the James Gallery where his work is on display next to his mother’s, Beverly Healey. Christopher studied Fine Arts at Concordia University in Montreal and is beginning a Masters of New Media & Communications at Hamilton’s McMaster University in September. Healey has always been interested in digital media and approaches this photo collage work through his painting and drawing sensibilities. His mother Beverly studied Fine Arts at Mount Allison University under Alex Colville and Lawren Harris Jr. and also studied Commercial art at Vesper George School of Art in Boston. Beverly ‘s favourite medium has always been oils due to their flexibility and texture. “The human face, for me, is the most interesting subject matter. The expression, lines and the eyes telling the story of lives lived.”

In the interview Chris further discusses the notions of place and space himself and his mother critically navigated, and elaborates on the painterly qualities of his digital collages amongst other topics. For those who are interested in seeing the show, the last weekend to do so will be Saturday, July 6.
