Artists Call

by Charlotte Townsend-Gault

Vanguard, Apr. 1984, v. 13, no. 3, p. 48

The Halifax art community responded to a call for political work Against U.S. Intervention in Central America with a sense of urgency that informed both the political passion and the human compassion of that response. Jan Peacock's video piece Pie y Cafe´ is highlighted by author Charlotte Townsead-Gault who declares the tape 'advocacy video at its best.'
