Abstract (English)

The essays in this catalogue call attention to diverse aspects of Mabie's practice, ranging from mail art, performance, artist's books, archival collecting and computer imaging. Emphasis is placed on the artist's "conversational strategy" and commitment to collaboration, through in-depth analysis of his company Chuck Stake Enterprizes (1972), and his participation in collectives such as The Nomads (1987), The SKEP(tic)KS (1992) and Art Catalyst (1992). The authors also discuss Mabie's involvement with Canadian artist-run centres and his connection to Fluxus art. Biographical notes. 155 bibl. ref.
