This is the first extensive survey catalogue on the work of Vancouver-based artist Ian Wallace – a seminal figure in Vancouver’s fertile 1970s art scene, a teacher who taught the first generation of the Vancouver School of photo-conceptualism. He inspired superstars such as Jeff Wall, Rodney Graham, and Stan Douglas. Wallace, a pioneer and theorist of photo-conceptualism, was energized by the dialectic tensions between monochrome painting and documentary or staged photography, exploring the emblematic sites of street, studio, and nature. A beautifully designed, oversized book on this vanguard artist, including excellent interpretive texts, extensive color reproductions, catalogue of exhibited works, a chronology, thorough bibliographic information, and an informative interview with Wallace by Renske Janssen.
