Overview

As British cities lose the cultural connections with their industrial past, many seek to build new post-industrial futures through urban regeneration. Art projects play a key role in policy-making that aims to regenerate neglected neighbourhoods.
This study focuses particularly on the ways in which newly developed cultural institutions tend to be flagships for regeneration - the Tate Modern in Southwark is one such example. The collection as a whole sheds new light on the issues by:
• Assessing art's relationship with 'Regeneration' from a range of disciplinary perspectives
• Highlighting cases of non-metropolitan cities, whose regeneration programmes have had a lower profile and less considered attention, until now
• Profiling the most recent and innovative projects for art in non-gallery settings
• Questioning the conventional categories of space as 'public' or 'private' by proposing a third area of 'transitional' space
• Investigating urban art's contribution to a sustainable environment
This collection of essays will be suitable for university courses as a coursebook and as supplementary reading. It will also be of great interest to professional artists, curators, art critics and arts managers, representing an area of vigorous conference and academic activity that is very under-represented in printed literature. This book forms a part of Intellect's Advances in Art and Urban Futures Series.
