We take a trip to Ottawa to visit Glenn Gould’s chair for the first time, and meet the curators responsible for looking after some of the most cherished Gould artifacts.
In this episode, we take a trip to Ottawa to visit Glenn Gould’s chair and are surprised by where we find it. We also take a tour of the backroom collection of Gould artifacts at the Canadian Museum of History. The tour opens up a discussion about and significance behind maintaining seemingly everyday objects once owned by Gould, as historical artifacts.
Interviews include Canadian Museum of History curator Judith Klassen, and National Arts Centre archivist Robert Vanderberg.
