Product Overview

Building on the groundbreaking book "Art in a City "by John Willet, which first surveyed the history of visual arts in Liverpool, this engaging follow-up explores contemporary Liverpudlian art by looking at it from alternative perspectives. Exploring and challenging the claim that Liverpool is Britain''s second city for art, "Art in a City Revisited" surveys key institutional players such as the Bluecoat and the Walker Gallery, as well as the Tate Liverpool, FACT, and the Liverpool Biennial. A volume with rich discussion on the nature of artistic patronage, the changing role of public art, and the social and community role of the artist--including contributions from Sean Cubitt and Mary Jane Jacob--this book is a major consideration of the role art plays in city regeneration and the future of Liverpool as a center of creative industry.
