Alex Durlak
A Report/Un Rapport
Toronto, Canada: Standard Form, 2007
52 pp., 18 × 18.5 × 0.5 cm., softcover
Edition of 300

A Report/Un Rapport is a response to a report written in 1978 by the Advisory Arts Panel to the Canada Council entitled The Future of the Canada Council. The government-subsidized publication features an introduction originally written in a concrete poetry style explaining the importance of art in society. Alex Durlak has created a new layout for the text using the introduction to both critique the challenges of contemporary artistic practices and to reinvest the ideals held by the late-70’s artistic community.
