Abstract (English)

A catalogue made to accompany an exhibition of contemporary works - paintings, installations, sculptures and photographs - by six Vancouver-based artists. Texts by six authors draw attention to various ways in which the artists address themes of excess and waste by appropriating pop culture, abstraction and hybrid media. Subjects of regionalism/internationalism, identity/community and technological progress are discussed in relation to post-war modernism and apocalypse. Includes artists' pages. List of works. Biographical notes. 69 bibl. ref.
