"B.C. Almanac(h) C-B, " marks the long overdue re-issue of a rare, sought-after anthology of fifteen photographic bookworks, originally commissioned in 1970 by the National Film Board of Canada’s Still Photography Division. The 472-page book, designed as a type of exhibition, includes key figures in the vibrant multimedia art scene that was flourishing on Canada’s west coast. Presentation House Gallery has remounted the accompanying 1970 exhibition that was conceived as an immersive, multimedia version of the book. The project highlights the experimental ethos of artist book production as alternatives to gallery exhibitions during that period, as well as radical new approaches to the circulation of print culture through mass media. - Presentation House Gallery
