This is a faceted taxonomy of publishing forms and genres typically used in visual arts publishing. The idea is to show how, in artist-led publishing, the aesthetic choice of form is critical to attracting a public and to facilitating circulation through atypical trade routes.

L’ARCA is a micropublication produced to accompany ARCA’s Saturday November 14, 2015 plenary*, from12:00 – 2:00, Layton Room, Ryerson Student Centre (Toronto), as part of the conference Artists at the Center: Moving from the Margins to Inclusion. Consisting in the edited print incarnation of twelve bilingual briefs disseminated weekly from August 25 to November 10, 2015, produced to provide a holistic sense of ARCA’s activities as they are connected to current cultural events.
The following strategies were presented by Adriana de Oliveira, lecturer at l’École des arts visuels et médiatiques at UQÀM and project leader at Centre de création pédagogique Turbine, as part of the Forum on visual arts dissemination held in Montréal, 20 & 21 February 2015, in conjunction with l’Association des groupes en arts visuels francophone (AGAVF)’s 12th annual members’ meeting.
Publications selected in this bibliography establish a dialogue with the book as object or concept, invest it as a platform for diffusion, play with its materiality, or investigate its inherent relationship to language.
This bibliography gathers titles published by Canadian and Québécois artist-run centres, which chronicle their history or important moments of their development. Far from being exhaustive, this bibliography begs to be completed and expanded by readers.
Far from being exhaustive, the present Sélection of Canadian artist-run centres’ publications—many bilingual in French and English, representing mostly the Québec and French Canadian scenes in Canada—presents a cross-section of titles published from 1991 to today. This initiative stems from a desire to revive or re-circulate key texts and documents produced by the network and thereby to shed light on ARCs’ contributions to the development of critical discourses about contemporary art in Canada.
Excerpted from ARCA’s 2014–15 Activity Report, this micropublication of 12 briefs will allow you to follow each subject individually while getting a holistic sense of ARCA’s activities as they are connected to current cultural events. A printed version will be distributed to participants of the plenary as part of the conference Artists at the Center: Moving from the Margins to Inclusion.
The Directory is an online database of artist-run centres and collectives (ARCs) from across Canada and interactive location map. Covering the breadth of the artist-run network and its distribution across the nine artist-run associations that make up the ARCA membership, the Directory allows art professionals to locate centres using a variety of filters including location, type, discipline, and submission deadlines.
In 2014, ARCA commissioned Mariane Bourcheix-Laporte to examine the evolution of art publishing funding at the Canada Council for the Arts.
