The Contemporary Art Gallery presented the North American debut of For Example: Dix-Huit Leçons sur la Société Industrielle, a new body of work by internationally respected Los Angeles artist Christopher Williams. Williams is strongly associated with a group of Vancouver artists known for the development of Photo Conceptualism. Like them, his approach comes out of the history of conceptual art of the 1960s and 70s, which used language and photography to address issues related to painting and sculpture.  Williams has self-consciously adopted the production values of fine art or “straight” photography into a practice that explores sculptural ideas using photography and installation. Curated by Claudia Beck.

This beautifully designed and important publication on the work of Christopher Williams was produced to coincide with his exhibition curated by Claudia Beck at the Contemporary Art Gallery in January 13 - March 6, 2005. It includes a forward by Christina Ritchie , an essay by John Miller Mechanization takes command: Modernization, Terminable and interminable and an additional pull out essay Some References for Christopher Williams by Claudia Beck.

The publication like William's work, is part straightforward exhibition catalogue and also part bookwork directed by Williams and impeccably designed by Yvonne Quirmbach.
