Traffic Conceptual Art in Canada 1965-1980 by Grant Arnold

A comprehensive survey of a movement that had, until now, gone undiscovered. This beautifully produced book explores the work of more than 90 artists, and includes essays by six curators, a conversation with an international group of scholars, an annotated chronology, and many reproductions of conceptual artworks produced in Canada. The book is a co-publication by five of Canada's leading galleries, and represents a cross-Canada perspective.
