Abstract (English)

This publication documents a history of avant-garde activity in Canada since 1939. Bronson illustrates how the developing Canadian art scene in these years was generated and shaped by the artists themselves, not just through their art, but with the periodicals, parallel galleries and art activity they created. Contributions by regional editors in Montréal, Vancouver and Toronto make the scope of the thesis a national one. Chronology of artist-initiated activity in Canada, 1939-1987.
