Traffic. Conceptual art in Canada 1965-1980

by David

This show argues that conceptual art has been one of the most transformative and seminal of the 20th century. Generally speaking conceptual art is thought of in terms of British, Italian, German, New York and LA schools of practice. This show takes a Canadian view on the conceptual movement and categorises the work across regional lines differentiating pieces into geographical groups from the Canadian nation.

Beginning with Montreal in the east and moving through Ontario, the Prairies and finally the West Coast it is a good catalogue of what was happening in fine art in the 60’s and 70’s. There was also a section of work at the end of international conceptual art and how it affect Canadian art.
