Afterall is pleased to present issue 30, Summer 2012, which looks at the relationship between institutions and the local.
During the 1990s, the discourse around New Institutionalism called for a more direct relationship between institutions and their different constituencies, as well as more enhanced models of participation. In this issue, we examine what the concrete effects of such rhetoric have been two decades later, both on art and curating. The case studies addressed range from organisations such as the collective ruangrupa in Indonesia, Grizedale Arts in the north of England, and The Artist’s Institute in New York, to art practices that navigate the intersection between place, people, and community, such as those of Jimmie Durham, Yael Bartana, and Theaster Gates.
