So, to Speak

So, to Speak, edited by Jean-Pierre Gilbert, Sylvie Gilbert and Lesley Johnstone

$9.95

This anthology, the first in the “Prendre parole” collection, contains 26 texts by Canadian visual artists who were asked to comment on how they conceive their artistic practice interweaving with the social fabric. The diverse styles of writing presented – fictional, anecdotal, polemical, biographical, philosophical – offer a wide range of critical perspectives on the relationship between art and society, and the personal/political responsibilities of being an artist.
