Special Launch Price!
The long-awaited second book, More Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women, edited by seminal performance artists Johanna Householder and Tanya Mars, is an indispensable compendium of original research and writing on Canadian women in performance art — covering work made from 1995 to 2015. Like the first volume, Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women (2004), this book gives readers a tactile, first-hand glimpse into this vibrant and largely under recognized subject in contemporary Canadian art history.
Richly illustrated with a stunning colour cover and 264 black and white images, More Caught in the Act captures the depth and breadth of this exciting field, its artists and their practices. The book includes 30 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. Designed by Zab Design & Typography and published by Artexte, Montréal and YYZ Books, Toronto, More Caught in the Act includes profiles of OCAD alumnae Reona Brass, Shannon Cochrane, Louise Liliefeldt and Camille Turner and writing by OCAD U. faculty Lillian Allen, Jim Drobnick, Cheryl l’Hirondelle, Johanna Householder, and b.h. Yael.
