Abstract (English)

Curator Long proposes these works as a sampling of artists' varied responses to issues arising from city life. He notes that the work on display mixes idealism with pragmatism, offering both hope and inspiration for social change. Pittendrigh considers the role the arts played in Tommy Douglas’s politics, and Marriott comments on the troubling derision of utopianism in contemporary discourse. List of works. Biographical notes. 27 bibl. ref.
