Still Sane

The art show Still Sane hit the Vancouver art scene in 1984. It told the story of Sheila Gilhooly's entrapment within the phychiatric system in the late 60s and early 70s, when homosexuality was still a category in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual and sexism was rife in the profession. Twelve months later the book Still Sane rolled off the presses of the local feminist publisher Press Gang, bringing the show's compelling mix of feminist, lesbian and mad politics to a wider audience.
