Cul-de-sac was published as an accompaniment to the touring exhibition Sea to Sky: Canadian Landscapes from the University of Lethbridge Art Collection circulated by the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery, however it goes beyond being an exhibition catalogue and adds a new level to the touring exhibition with which it is associated. Written by Artist/Curator Andrew Hunter, with a forward by University of Lethbridge Art Gallery Director/Curator Josephine Mills, Hunter uses the works included in Sea to Sky as a starting point for his discussion of the on-going relevance of the landscape genre. Using personal narratives of his own experiences and family history brought together with key events and historical figures, Hunter addresses the intersection of private experience with cultural memory and of the present with the past.
