Caught in the Act: An Anthology of Performance Art by Canadian Women
Tanya Mars, Johanna Householder
YYZ Books, 2004 - Art - 428 pages
This indispensable anthology gives readers access to an important and under-recognized subject in recent Canadian art history. Edited by two seminal Canadian performance artists, this book focuses on the 70s and 80s; a time when women made a big and noisy impact. Full of sass and insight, this essential collection is part survey, part critical discourse, and part reference book, containing five critical essays, thirty-four artist's profiles, and an extensive bibliography.
