Ruins in Process


Drawn from private collections and archives as well as public sources, Ruins in Process brings together still and moving images, ephemera, essays and interviews to explore the diverse artistic practices of Vancouver art in the 1960’s and early 1970’s. Collaborative methods, interdisciplinary activity and an interest in emerging technologies are revealed in the selections of the curators, writers and artists that have contributed to this educational resource. Visitors may browse this resource and the Project Sites through the central archives using names, dates, titles and keywords.
