Abstract or Description

Literary Nonfiction. Art Criticism & Theory. Introduction by Carol Becker. Over the course of the 20th century artists have sought to engage aesthetic and social potential latent in traditionally non-artistic sites. Such endeavors seek to activate both artistic and non-artistic communities while privileging the often ephemeral and social interactions that arise, rather than a singular art object or exhibition gallery practice. SERVICE MEDIA contains a collection of 16 essays, artist projects, an interview, and a syllabus around and about socially engaged art practice. Each contribution independently defines, critiques and celebrates art's action beyond and outside the white cube, "creating community within a community."
