Vintage Video: Early Canadian Art to 1974

by Renee Baert

Exhibition catalogue for show curated by Renee Baert, "Vintage Video". The exhibition consisted of a three-program selection of videos and installations by the first generation of Canadian video artists. Due to the range of approaches to early video, "from documentation to synaesthetic performance to structuralist to social action to 'home movies' to documentary to narrative... (a range) so extensive that the three-program selection of work cannot begin to reflect the scope of this period" [page 3 of catalogue] The catalogue contains an introduction by the curator and dedicates one page to each of the artists/artworks included in the exhibition.

Vintage Video was on view at Artculture Resource Centre from May 24 to June 14, 1986.
