Description

This first definitive study on Canadian women in performance art gives readers access to a largely unexplored subject in recent art history. Edited by two seminal performance artists, these essays focus on the 70s and 80s, a time when women made a big and noisy impact on what had been very male terrain. Part survey, part critical discourse and part reference book, this essential collection contains five critical essays, 36 artists’ profiles, over 100 images, and an extensive bibliography. Artists profiled include Lillian Allen, Rebecca Belmore, Shawna Dempsey & Lorri Millan, Gathie Falk, Kiss ‘n Tell and Françoise Sullivan. Contributors include Jessica Bradley, Ian Carr-Harris, Barbara Fischer, Jennifer Fisher, Nelson Henricks, Kim Sawchuck and Dot Tuer.
