The 2014 exhibition explored how modernist legacies are being revisited by contemporary, largely female, Canadian artists' the formalist aesthetics of the modernist movement of the 1960s (which included many Saskatchewan artists via the Emma Lake workshops) are now being recognized by female Canadian artists at various stages of their careers' an interesting phenomenon given that women artists were historically largely excluded from the intellectual discourse at the birth of the movement.

Fully illustrated with exhibition installation images, the book follows suit in presenting artists from across Canada who utilize formalist aesthetics in ways that take new conceptual, narrative and aesthetic turns. In addition, three critical essays—two commissioned and one from the exhibition curator— contextualize the movement.
