Locating the Producers

Edited by Paul O'Neill and Claire Doherty, this publication explores how 'durational' processes to public art curating and commissioning have emerged as an alternative to nomadic, itinerant and short-termist approaches in recent years. It provides an in-depth analysis of five durational projects as its starting point: The Blue House (Het Blauwe Huis), IJburg, The Netherlands (2004–2009); Beyond, Leidsche Rijn, The Netherlands (1999 –2009); Trekroner Art Plan, Roskilde, Denmark (2001–present); Creative Egremont, Cumbria, UK (ongoing since 1999) and Edgware Road Project, London, UK (2009–2011).

This book provides a dynamic assessment of different curatorial methodologies alongside critical reflections on durational projects as counter-spectacles. The authors explore how and why artists and curator-producers are adopting durational approaches to commissioning contemporary art for specific places and how each process conceives of time as part of a cumulative curatorial practice.

Contributors also include: Dave Beech, Ned Rossiter and Mick Wilson amongst others.
