Hiding in plain sight: regionalism and the underground

Margie Borschke

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


I never really went looking for 'the underground', but as a teenager in the mid 1980s I found one at the top of a steep set of stairs in an artist-run gallery in downtown London, Ontario. The place was known as the Forest City Gallery, and in addition to providing exhibition space for the area's visual artists and filmmakers, the gallery opened itself up to the city's diverse underground music scene, including teenagers like me. It was the promise and thrill of an all-ages show that first brought me here.
