Abstract (English)

This anthology, the first in a series of publications entitled "Prendre Parole", contains 26 texts by Canadian visual artists who were asked to comment on how they conceive their artistic practice interweaving with the social fabric. The diverse styles of writing presented - fictional, anecdotal, polemical, biographical, philosophical - offer a wide range of critical perspectives on the relationship between art and society, and the personal/political responsibilities of being an artist. Artistic disciplines, cultural events and everyday life experiences are considered (directly and indirectly) in relation to topics such as place, language, story, science and technology, identity, time and space. Includes reprinted texts by Frenkel and Carr-Harris. 14 bibl. ref.

Résumé

Première publication d'une série intitulée « Prendre Parole », cette anthologie réunit 26 textes d'artistes canadiens interrogés sur la façon dont leur pratique s'imbrique dans le tissu social. La diversité des styles adoptés - fictif, anecdotique, polémique, biographique, philosophique - offre un vaste éventail de points de vue critiques sur la relation entre l’art et la société, et sur les responsabilités personnelles et politiques liées au statut d'artiste. Disciplines artistiques, événements culturels et expériences du quotidien sont considérés de façon directe ou indirecte et selon leurs rapports à des notions telles que le lieu, le langage, le récit, la science et la technologie, l'identité, le temps et l'espace. Comprend quatre textes en français. Textes de Frenkel et de Carr-Harris en réimpression. 14 réf. bibl.
