Art and Its Worlds: Exhibitions, Institutions and Art Becoming Public

Sale Special Price $31.50 $35.00



An anthology of essays on art’s relation to the public realm since 1989

This critical anthology explores the myriad histories and worlds through which art is produced and experienced. It is guided by the following questions: How are the “global” and the “located” shaped and understood in disparate contexts and times? How have artists experimented with modes of exhibition-making and public presentation?
Key essays previously published by Afterall are included alongside new image-led presentations, translated material and commissioned texts. The anthology addresses the topic in both theoretical terms and through case studies.
Contributors include: Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui, Miguel A. López, Eddie Chambers, Francesca Recchia, Pablo Lafuente, Philippe Pirotte, Ntone Edjabe, Clémentine Deliss, Khwezi Gule, Charles Gaines, David Teh, Ekaterina Degot, Ana Teixeira Pinto, María Berríos, Mujeres Creando, Comunitario del Valle de Xico, Tonika Sealy Thompson and Stefano Harney.
