More Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women
SATURDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2016
The long-awaited second volume, Â More Caught in the Act:Â an anthology ofÂ performance art by CanadianÂ womenÂ is an indispensable compendium of original researchÂ andÂ writing on, and images of, Canadian women in performance art covering work made from 1990 to 2010. Like the first volume,Â Caught in the Act:Â an anthology ofÂ performance art by CanadianÂ womenÂ (2004), this book gives readers a first-hand glimpse into this vibrant and largely under recognized subject in contemporary Canadian art history.
More Caught in the Act includes 29 comprehensive profiles of artists from across the country, along with five contextual essays that place current performance strategies by women within broader art historical and cultural contexts. Richly illustrated by a stunning colour cover and 264 black and white images,Â More Caught in the ActÂ captures the depth and breadth of this exciting field.
Edited by Johanna Householder and Tanya Mars and designed by Zab Design & Typography, published byÂ YYZBOOKS, Toronto and Artexte Editions, MontrÃ©al and.
