Abstract (English)

Works by nine artists were created for a bus shelter advertising display case in Vancouver. Culley views this non-commercial reappropriation of public space as a critical response to advertising practises and to attemps to transform post-Expo 86 Vancouver into an international financial capital. Personal statements by some of the artists. Biographical notes.
