How did a small art college in Nova Scotia become the epicenter of art education—and to a large extent, the hub of the Post Minimalist and conceptual art world itself? In the 1970s, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (aka NSCAD) redefined art education and its complex trajectory far beyond Halifax. From gallery openings to dance performances and exhibitions, this book offers a rich historical account of the school's activities, supplemented by reminiscences from faculty and students along with notes on infamous controversies.
