Abstract (English)

"The long-awaited second volume, More Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women is an indispensable compendium of original research and writing on, and images of, Canadian women in performance art covering work made from 1990 to 2010. Like the first volume, Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women (2004), this book gives readers a first-hand glimpse into this vibrant and largely under recognized subject in contemporary Canadian art history.

More Caught in the Act includes 29 comprehensive profiles of artists from across the country, along with five contextual essays that place current performance strategies by women within broader art historical and cultural contexts." -- Publisher's website,

Résumé

"Le second volume, tant attendu, More Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women, est un nouveau compendium indispensable de recherche et d’écrits sur l’histoire des femmes canadienne dans l’art performance examinant des œuvres produites de 1990 à 2010. Comme le volume précédent, Caught in the Act: an anthology of performance art by Canadian women (2004) ce livre offre aux lecteurs un aperçu direct du sujet encore largement sous-estimé en histoire de l’art canadien récent.

Ce nouveau volume présente vingt-neuf profils détaillés d’artistes canadiennes en art performance à travers le pays ainsi que cinq dissertations situant les stratégies de performance par les femmes à l’intérieur des frontières de l’histoire de l’art et des contextes culturels." -- Site de l'éditeur.
