SightLines: Reading Contemporary Canadian Art, edited by Jessica Bradley and Lesley Johnstone

$25.00$35.00

This selection of 25 essays reveals the changing tenor of writing on art in Canada in the 1980s, reflecting the influence of feminism and an interrogation of the institutional structure of art. Among the issues addressed are : notions of identity and history; the relationship between the work of art, the artist, and the institution; the position of the critic and the development of a critical voice.
