Abstract (English)

Illustrating the complex and diverse nature of "notions of performance", Pontbriand's introduction precedes contributions by 16 artists exemplifying their work. Situating performance historically and socially, ten critical essays examine various facets of the phenomenon, including: the distinction between American and European sensibilities; its function as a mode of communication; its prominence in the shift of the nature and function of art; and its efficacy from a feminist perspective. Canadian artists at the Western Front and from the Toronto area are highlighted in two texts.
