     his group of Montreal poets who gathered in the mid-1970s around the alternative gallery Vehicule Art and the printing operation Vehicule Press, was initially interested in gaining access to the means of production. But a funny thing happened on the way to print.

The various poets—Artie Gold, Claudia Lapp, John McAuley, Ken Norris, Stephen Morrisey, Tom Konyves, and Endre Farkas—coalesced into a group, feeding off each other's experiences and innovations. Inspired by the experimental environment of the gallery, the Vehicule Poets worked at the cutting edge of mixed media, poetry, performance and videopoetry.
