What struck me immediately in my chat with Dr. Julia Polyck-O’Neill is her attentiveness to relationality’s many frequencies. Her writing on conceptualism’s legacies and Canadian avant-garde scenes, particularly the Kootenay School of Writing, is necessitated by relations, whether building trust with her research subjects, or investigating the porousness between media and form in artists’ interdisciplinary practices.
