Contemporary Art: From Studio to Situation
Doherty, Claire; Buren, Daniel; Bourriaud, Nicholas; Domela, Paul
Funded by Arts Council England and AHRC. Doherty is editor of this collection and wrote the introductory chapter. The book describes and analyses the shift from studio-based to situated art practices. Unlike the exhibition catalogue or monograph which promotes a particular artist or a curatorial thesis, the book gives insights into the range of strategies artists and curators have used to approach given contexts. Ranging from relational aesthetics to the concerns of site-specificity, it examines the value of context in the commissioning and production of temporary art works, drawing upon case studies and commissioned essays.
As a result, Doherty received invitations to: Interface: Art and Contested Spaces, University of Ulster (2004); Experimental Communities, ARCO, Madrid (2005); Protections, Kunsthaus Graz (2006); Beyond the Studio, National College of Art and Design, Dublin (2007); Art in the Public Realm, Universities Venice, Milan (2007); New models of cooperation between the curator and the artist, Ludwig Museum, Budapest (2005); Contemporary Art, Fundacio La Caixa Barcelona. Doherty was invited to be inaugural Curatorial Fellow, Massey University, Wellington, 2006-09.
