The Art of Engagement: Culture, collaboration, innovation
Elaine Lally, Ien Ang, and Kay Anderson
The Art of Engagement investigates contemporary art projects which aim to establish a unique collaborative process by bringing artists together with businesses, other organisations, and communities.
This book documents exemplary collaborations between artists Craig Walsh, Sylvie Blocher, Ash Keating, and Jeanne van Heeswijk, and business partners from Sydney including a Rugby League team, and environmental and waste management companies to demonstrate that the community is everywhere: in the artwork, at the sites of artistic expression and in the reactions to the works produced by C3West.
The Art of Engagement explores the aesthetic, political and economic dimensions of each project and features quality images and documentation of the completed C3West projects.
As a reference for the art world in Australia and internationally, this book will appeal to both visual and performing artists, those who work within the arts, or are engaged in cultural studies.
