agYU, 2005, pp. 0-4

Toronto: Art Gallery of York University, 2005

A short and apparently objective explanation of Toronto Video art themes and ideas from 1970-2005. Using examples of the Toronto video artists the author explains popular ideas: using the self, appearing to the audience in a personal and inward manner, and personal history has the same weight as important historic events.
