The first major survey of recent art from the western edge of the United States, Canada, and Baja California, Mexico. Focusing on works that engage with the social landscapes of this transnational corridor, this catalog presents compelling and surprising images of a distinctive cultural terrain—one that is arguably North America's most vital region of contemporary art production.

With essays by Douglas Coupland, Matthew Coolidge of the Center for Land Use Interpretation, Lisa Robertson of the Office for Soft Architecture, Wattis Institute director Ralph Rugoff, and Matthew Stadler and more than 150 full-color reproductions.
