Sally McKay is an art writer, independent curator, and practicing artist. She is currently a PhD candidate in Art History and Visual Culture at York University, studying neuroaesthetics from a feminist perspective. From 1997-2003, Sally was co-owner/editor with Catherine Osborne of the Toronto art magazine Lola. Since that time she has continued to publish numerous essays and reviews on Canadian art, she has curated several major exhibitions, and continues to perform and exhibit her own art projects.

Andrew J. Paterson is an interdisciplinary artist working with performance, video and film, musical composition, and both critical and fiction writing. His performances and videotapes have been presented and exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally. Paterson has been a board member of many Canadian organizations and has curated various media art programs. He is the coordinator of The 8 Fest, a festival for small-gauge film.

The writers and artists featured in Money Value Art explore the key--and often overlooked--issues of money and value not only through theory and critique, but also through wry humour, personal anecdotes, and art projects. The contributors explore a range of topics including discrimination, globalization, the historical relationships between art and poverty, systems of exclusion, and the challenges of inclusion--blowing open the binary relationship between state subsidization and private sector competition.
