Overview

Artangel has been responsible for commissioning some of the most important artworks of recent years, both in the U.K. and abroad. Over the last decade, Artangel has created a huge variety of boundary-changing projects, often in unusual locations, with such internationally acclaimed artists as Juan Muñoz, Rachel Whiteread, Robert Wilson, Douglas Gordon, Janet Cardiff, Brian Eno, Laurie Anderson, and Matthew Barney.

Examining forty projects from the last decade involving filmmakers, writers, visual artists, composers, choreographers, and performers, Off Limits provides a unique overview of the special alchemy generated when artists regard the qualities and conditions of a location as central to the development of a project.

Off Limits is a timely celebration of the last ten years of this extraordinary organization, and of huge relevance to anyone interested in the broader issues of contemporary art.

Author Biography: James Lingwood has been a co-director of Artangel since 1992 and is well known as an independent curator and writer.

Michael Morris has also been a co-director of Artangel since 1992. He founded his own theater production company, Cultural Industry, in 1988, and has collaborated with a number of artists.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1993, British artist Rachel Whiteread used the interior walls of an East End London home to cast a concrete sculpture titled House. Once the exterior walls were removed, the inside-out concrete mass was exposed in the shape of a three-story home. House is one of 40 nontraditional public artworks, commissioned and organized by the London-based organization Artangel, that are celebrated in this book. Artangel codirectors Lingwood and Morris seek out artists, including filmmakers, writers, visual artists, composers, choreographers, and performers, whose works are not easily exhibited in traditional venues. Some of the better-known artists included here are Laurie Anderson, Matthew Barney, John Berger, Shirin Neshat, and Douglas Gordon. In addition to 300 illustrations and discussions of the projects by various writers, the book includes an interview with the codirectors, critical essays by contemporary art scholars, and a chronology of projects commissioned by Artangel since its inception in 1985. Unfortunately, the essay authors' credentials are missing, leaving the reader to speculate on their relationship to the topic. Recommended for libraries with strong contemporary art collections.-Krista Ivy, California State Univ., San Bernardino Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
