Truth & Beauty

by A.A. Bronson

File, Fall 1975, v. 3, no. 1, p. 44

A.A. Bronson attends and writes about Colin Campbell's exhibition at A Space showing recent videotapes on September 24th, 1974. In particular, Bronson focuses on the opening party itself with its attendees: Peggy Gale, Sandy Stagg, and Isobel Harry, to name a few of the Toronto cultural figures highlighted. Bronson observes and describes their actions, gestures, and hairstyles referencing the glamorous sophistication set by the styling team of Vidal Sassoon: Fernando Romero (Artistic Director for North America), Mary Lou (Artistic Director for Toronto), and Vidal Sassoon himself. Bronson points out that the delicacy of Campbell's tapes is lost in this crowd, but that certainly all those Sassooned profiles including himself must appreciate their romantic complexity.
