"A deadline met becomes the solace for every undigested epiphany" - Roger Cohen

Cameron Skene’s writing on art has appeared in Canadian Art, Border Crossings, ARTnews, the Montreal Gazette, Vie des Arts and The National Post, among others. His newspaper contributions attempted to present contemporary art to a general readership: from contemporary trends and profiles on contemporary artists to subjects as varied as art theft, art transportation, artists’ estates and art authentication. In 2010, he was a guest curator for the exhibition Dead Cat Bounce at Art Lexis in New York.
