An irreverent document of Artspace's 15-year commitment to exhibitions, publications, performances, videos and film, this book challenges the notion of what an organization for and about artists can be at the dawn of the 21st century. Supported by Artspace grants, the guerilla artists of Survival Research Laboratories terrorized San Fransisco with robots and air cannons, Karen Finley astonished audiences at Theater Artaud, and Jenny Holzer sucker-punched unsuspecting Giants fans with big-board LED messages at Candlestick Park. Here are projects by such provocateurs as General Idea, Jessica Diamond, David Mach, and Patrick Ireland, stills from videos by Tony Oursler and Sophie Calle, and the legendary Lunch Movies of emeritus museum director Jim Elliot, featuring Candy Darling. From Shift magazine come articles by Ingird Sischy and Kathy Acker; images from the newly released Chris Munch film Sleepy Time Gal; and excerpts from Artspace Books, an artist-writer series featuring works by John DeFazio, Dave Hickey, David Wojnarowicz, Jack Pierson, Jim Lewis, Nan Goldin, Klaus Kertess, Gregory Crewdson, Rick Moody and A.M. Homes. Artspace Is/Artspace Was is an engaging presentation of artists who know to combine subversion and fun in their work.

The mainstream media keeps us in a constant state of emergency where the word `crisis¿ is used daily and `breaking news¿ is a permanent banner across our screens. The real emergencies we should be facing are often disguised behind biased rhetoric or consciously omitted altogether: Climate change! Severe economic inequality! Decay of democracy! Brexit! Trump! The alt-right! 52 ARTISTS 52 ACTIONS sets out to address the real and daunting trials of everyday life across contemporary Asia. Each of the 52 artists includes a statement about their work, which often reads as a compelling, heartbreaking memoir in miniature, giving deep insights into cultural traditions.

Public art - the making, management and mediation of art outside its conventional location in museums and galleries, and the livable city - a concept involving user-centred strategies for urban planning and design, are both socially produced but have emerged from different fields and tend to be discussed in isolation. This book applies a range of critical perspectives which have emerged from different disciplines - art criticism, urban design, urban sociology, geography and critical theory - to examine the practice of art for urban public spaces, seeing public art from positions outside those of the art world to ask how it might contribute to possible urban futures. Exploring the diversity of urban politics, the functions of public space and its relation to the structures of power, the roles of professionals and users in the construction of the city, the gendering of space and the ways in which space and citizen are represented, the book explains how these issues are as relevant to architecture, urban design and urban planning as they are to public art. Drawing on a wealth of images from across the UK and Europe and the USA, in particular, the author questions the effectiveness of public art in achieving more convivial urban environments, whilst retaining the idea that imagining possible futures is as much part of a democratic society as using public space.
