Description

The twelve essays in the collection address cultural theory, aesthetics, and policy issues related to the economics of art in the context of globalization and the spreading influence of the practices and ideologies of market culture. With particular reference to Canada, they question whether these shifts and the rise of new media technologies are endangering or enriching public participation, democratic negotiation, and cultural diversity. The book includes essays by John Fekete on Innis and censorship, Thierry de Duve on global markets, Nicole Debreuil on the Voice of Fire controversy, and Mark Cheethum on Alex Colville and Andy Patton. It also includes specifically commissioned artworks by leading Canadian artists such as Vera Frenkel and Cheryl Sourkes. Authors: Bruce Barber (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design), Jody Berland (York), Mark A. Cheetham (Western), Thierry de Duve (Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, Washington, DC), Michael Dorland (Carleton), Nicole Dubreuil (Montreal), John Fekete (Trent), Shelley Hornstein (York), Johanne Lamoureux (Montreal), Brenda Longfellow (York), Janine Marchessault (McGill), Paul Mattick, Jr (Adelphi),and Anne Whitelaw (Alberta). Artists: Karl Beveridge, Michael Buckland, Carole Conde, Vera Frenkel, Janice Gurney, John Marriott, Luke Murphy, Yvonne Singer, Cheryl Sourkes, John Veenema, and Ron Wakkary.

Editorial Review

"Capital Culture is a very stimulating and valuable collection of essays that raises issues central to current debates affecting art and cultural politics in the modern world. The essays bring important new insights and perspectives on cultural policy, national identity, and the economics of art in general. It is particularly exciting to see a book dedicated to examining theoretical, institutional, and artistic practices in Canada - a focus which also foregrounds the important contributions of Canadian artists, scholars, and museum and gallery curators to the larger international debates affecting modernist and postmodernist studies." Maureen Ryan, Art History, University of British Columbia
