About this book

The arts are situated at the centre of policies and programs seeking to make communities more creative, cohesive or productive. This book highlights the governmental, aesthetic and economic contexts which shape art in community, offering a constructive account of the ties between government, culture and the citizen.

Reviews

"Art in Community provides an astute analysis of art, community and government in a world shaped by neo-liberal policies and increasing cultural diversity. Resisting the celebratory tone of creative industries discourse and community arts practice, the book is alive to the contradictions of contemporary art-making. Khan lucidly argues that provisionality is symptomatic of the evolving relations between culture, politics and subjectivity." - Greg Noble, University of Western Sydney, Australia
