In this profile of over two hundred years of Canadian representation, Nelson explores the national, social, cultural and individual artistic identities as they are produced in relation to sex, sexuality, race, class and gender. Working from the premise that the Black female body is a transgressive site with complex and persistent roots within Western Culture, the author reevaluates the work of a dozen artists.
