Abstract
Pertains to a collection of post-war contemporary Canadian art work, focused between the years of 1945 and 1983. In addition to art work, the book contains a series of essays in attempts to further the reader’s pluralistic understanding of contemporary Canadian art. Rather than specific careers, the book seeks to identify the issues that Canadian contemporary art aims to address. Without constraints, the publication is edited to provide a cross-section of multiple artistic forms of expression, rather than confining oneself to a specific medium or genre.
