To mark the occasion, the organization is featuring some special material, including rare publications from the private collection of Art Metropole co-founder, AA Bronson. Featured works include a first edition of Michael Snow’s seminal artists’ book, Cover to Cover, (ed. Kasper König, NSCAD Press), and other publications by Canadian and international artists including Guerrilla Girls, Image Bank, Martin Kippenberger, Ron Terada, Barbara Kruger, Luis Jacob, Antonia Hirsch, Lisa Robertson, Stan Douglas, and Laurie Anderson, among others.
