This exploration takes him first to a discussion of the value of talking about art at all (with excursions to Verdun, to the Champs Elysées and to Expo 67). Then to the National Gallery, the Musée d’art contemporain, the Art Gallery of Ontario and an exhibition of contemporary art at a small Canadian art school." - from the back cover.
