This is Paradise / From the National Gallery of Canada Collection
The Trudeau years in Canada, 1968 to 1984, saw the coming of age of the children of the cold war television-generation and its overwhelming rejection of post war art dominated by Abstraction. A new paradigm erupted, where television could become art and ironic media-inspired images, pseudo artifacts and cartoonish drawings replaced minimalist canvases on the walls of art galleries. The exhibition includes seminal work by artists from the period: Susan Britton, David Buchan, Tom Dean, General Idea, Tanya Mars, Sandra Meigs, John Scott, and Joanne Tod.
