Book Manuscript in process: Engendering an avant-garde: the unsettled landscapes of Vancouver photo-conceptualism
This analysis of the origins of the Vancouver School of Photo Conceptualism in the late 1960s until its development as an international success in the 1990s, offers an innovative interpretation of avant-garde practice as a discursive manifestation of settler colonialism that establishes and replicates white masculine power amongst competing social bodies in peripheral locations, thus unsettling the “spacelessness” associated with global contemporary art. In contract with Manchester University Press.
