YYZ Book Launch
"Pro-Forma", edited by Jessica Wyman, features essays and artists' projects that consider developments in the use of text in contemporary art. The first volume, being released Wednesday October 10th at 7pm at YYZ, examines the use of text in conceptual art. Volumes 2 and 3 look at text in strictly visual works and work that traverses boundaries between media, such as cinema, literature and visual art. Contributors include Barbara Balfour, David Garneau, Michelle Jacques, Michael Maranda, Eve Meltzer, Philip Monk, Mirielle Perron, Paul de Guzman, Ron Terada, John A. Walker and Laurel Woodcock.
