Summary "Bruce Barber has worked across performance, installation, film, video and photography since the early 1970s, developing propositional and situational works that engage and question social and political regimes of power. Originally from Auckland where he studied at Elam School of Fine Arts in the early 1970s within the highly influential and experimental sculpture and intermedia programme, Barber has been based in Canada for three decades, retaining professional ties with New Zealand and Australia. Early in his career as an artist Barber was a pivotal and important figure in New Zealand post-object art, exploring new territory in performance and time-based practice. The impact of that period on current contemporary practice and thinking is immeasurable, as exhibitions and publications over the last decade have demonstrated, not just in New Zealand but in Australia and Canada as well." -- Introduction, p.7
