"Sight Lines: reading contemporary Canadian art" includes 25 texts originally published in English and French during the 1980s. This anthology is structured thematically around aspects of critical inquiry that emerged in the 1980s and reveals the changing tenor of writing on art in Canada. Multiple approaches to the question of identity, the relantionship between the work of art, the artist and the institution, the position of the critic and the development of a critical voice, as well as the notion of history and how it is written, are among the issues addressed. The influence of feminism and an interrogation of the institutional structure of art permeate this volume, reflecting the general move towards forms of criticism that examine the ideological and social conditions of the production and exhibition of art.
