Origins accompanied an exhibition of the same name by Al Neil at Western Front in 1989. Including texts by Neil, Scott Watson, Annette Hurtig, and Alex Varty, which provide a survey of the artist and musician’s life and practice in Vancouver’s avant-garde, the catalogue also contains eight full-colour plates selected from Neil’s “Origins: Celtic Series” collages, and photodocumentation of performances.
