‘A Report/Un Rapport’ is a response to a report written in 1978 by the Advisory Arts Panel to the Canada Council entitled The Future of the Canada Council. The government-subsidized publication features an introduction originally written in a concrete poetry style explaining the importance of art in society. Alex Durlak has created a new layout for the text using the introduction to both critique the challenges of contemporary artistic practices and to reinvest the ideals held by the late-70’s artistic community. Written in both French and English, this new rendition features colourful typographic layouts and will be printed and bound entirely by the artist. 52 pages, 2 colour printing, Perfect bound. Limited Edition of 300.
