UNLEASHING THE IMAGINATION: AN ANARCHIST TOUR OF THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF CANADA [by Allan Antliff]
This zine is wonderful because it includes images of each painting it refers to and it includes very good background on the histories behind each painting, painter and social climate. Although I personally disagree with some of Antliff's interpretations of the paintings and his very critical view of the National Gallery's curators, overall, I am glad that Ottawa's Exile Press invested in this great alternative and useful guide to publicly owned art at the National Gallery.
