Description

Developing out of major survey exhibitions at Artspace Visual Arts Centre (Australia) and Te Tuhi Centre for the Arts (New Zealand), this book surveys almost four decades of work by Canada-based artist Bruce Barber. Ranging across performance, installation, film, video and photography, Barber’s practice has long been consistently situational and propositional, resulting in works that engage and question social and political regimes of power. Edited by Stephen Cleland and Blair French, this book features extensive documentation of Barber’s work between 1970 and 2008 along with contributions by Bruce Barber, Christina Barton, Brad Buckley, Emma Bugden, Mark A. Cheetham, Alex Gawronski, Marc James Léger and Laura Preston.

Bruce Barber is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia where he is Professor and Director of the MFA Program at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. He has exhibited and published extensively internationally since the early 1970s. He is editor of Essays on Performance and Cultural Politicization (1983), Conceptual Art: the NSCAD Connection 1967–1973 (2001), Condé and Beveridge: Class Works (2008) and co-editor, with Serge Guilbaut and John o’Brian of Voices of Fire: Art Rage, Power, and the State (1996). A two-volume set of his writings has been published as Performance, [Performance] and Performers: Essays and Conversations 1976–2006 (2007), whilst his most recent book is Trans/actions: Art, Film and Death (2009).
