Suggestive Poses: Artists and Critics Respond to Censorship by Lorraine Johnson

1997, Trade Paperback

"This anthology presents a range of takes on and experiences with censorship in recent Canadian history, most of them by people who have been on the cultural “front lines.” From John Greyson’s preface “Don’t Cry for Me, Project P,” which raises the spectre of censorship as an androgynous character, named “Eveto,” exercising crowd control, the volume moves through a series of essays and artists’ contributions. The writing ranges from poetic to academic prose, with political engagement as the common denominator. Since all of the contributors are Canadian artists, curators, critics, and academics who have had first-hand experiences with censorship in recent Canadian history, a lot of the same events, the same legal battles, are referred to again and again, but often from divergent viewpoints." -Quill & Quire
