With essays by Vancouverite Douglas Coupland, Matthew Coolidge of the Culver City, California-based Center for Land Use Interpretation, Lisa Robertson of the Vancouver-based Office for Soft Architecture, and others, and more than 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, Ron Terada and others.… (more)
