This book is deals specifically with how racism in Canada and how it relates to Canadian art and artists and the institutions artists have to deal with so they don't starve. I think she makes some really important points that are also applicable to how racism plays out in the United States and elsewhere it the world. I'd recommend this book to any artist.
