This eclectic, provocative, and comprehensive guide surveys Canadian creators and their creations in every cultural medium. Cultural critic Tom Henighan introduces each subject with a thought-provoking essay on the "state of the art" at the turn of the millennium, adding lists of his own best choices, such as "16 Indispensable Canadian Films" and "Notable Examples of Canadian Architecture." Contact details and resumes for major artistic companies and institutions in each province are listed. Juno, Genie, Gemini, Jessie, Governor General, and other award winners are also listed, year by year. An indispensable reference, a basic primer, an informed assessment of the arts in Canada-this is the book for anyone who cares about Canadian culture.
