General Idea, Light On, 1972
The Justina M. Barnicke Gallery presents Traffic: Conceptual Art in Canada 1965-1980. September 11 - November 28, 2010. Related Conference: November 25 - 27, 2010.
Concerned with language, body, place and geography– all constitutive elements and primary interests of Conceptual Art internationally, Traffic is organized around urban and regional centres from Halifax to Vancouver, but seeks to capture the effervescent, and often contentions, lines of traffic between them.
The exhibition includes works by Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, AA Bronson, Martha Rosler and Lawrence Weiner, all visiting artists for the MFA Art Practice Program.
