Senses of Place in a Multicentered Society

An excellent reference guide to recent and historical place-oriented art and activism. --

Lippard has signaled the highest political hopes of art, from her early embrace of '60s conceptual art to her '70s support of feminism to her careful documentation in the '80s of the art of America's ethnic communities. . . [The Lure of the Local] arrives at an auspicious time, as interest in community history is on the rise throughout the country. . . An encyclopedic study of the art of community. --

Lippard overwhelms us with the breadth of her reading and the comprehensiveness with which she considers the things that define place. . . [The Lure of the Local] could equally well turn up in areas like environment, planning, women's studies, geography, and current affairs. --

Exhibition documentation of The Lure of the Local by Christian Bishop, curated by Wilson Yeung at Field 36 Gallery/Melbourne, Australia. Exhibition from the 21st to the 26th of October 2014.
