Baja to Vancouver: The West Coast and Contemporary Art

Regular price $44.95

Baja to Vancouver: The West Coast and Contemporary Art accompanies the first major survey of contemporary art from the western edge of the United States, Canada and Baja California, Mexico. Focusing on works that engage with the social landscapes of this transnational corridor, it presents compelling and surprising images of a distinctive cultural terrain—one that is arguably the most vital region of art production in North America today. This publication includes essays by Vancouver-based artist Douglas Coupland, Matthew Coolidge of the Culver City, California-based Center for Land Use Interpretation and Lisa Robertson of the Vancouver-based Office for Soft Architecture, as well as over 110 reproductions of artwork by Delia Brown, Roman de Salvo, Trisha Donnelly, Stan Douglas, Sam Durant, Harrell Fletcher & Miranda July, Chris Johanson, Ken Lum, Liz Magor, Roy McMakin, Larry Sultan and Ron Terada, among others.
