It’s Still Priviledged Art (1975) is a series of cartoons and text that narrate the artists’ journey from a formalist to a politicized art. The text and images are based on taped conversations the artists had with each other during the summer and fall of 1975 in which they questioned the art market and the ideological assumptions behind it. There are two alternating styles of drawing modeled on the then current Chinese Maoist comic books. The resulting booklet was published as the catalogue to their 1976 exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
