Practising Place

Date uploaded: April 24, 2015

As part of the Practising Place programme, In Certain Places has announced a new collaboration with The Double Negative - a UK-based online magazine featuring a selection of the latest in arts, design, film and music. Over the next year, the magazine will host a series of new, jointly commissioned texts by geographers, sociologists, cultural theorists, artists and experts from other fields, which explore the relationship between art practice and place.

These essays form a continuation of the Practising Place events - a series of public conversations between artists and researchers from other disciplines who share an interest in specific aspects of place. The first essay, On Being Out Of Place by Rosemary Shirley, explores the writer's interest in the ideology of landscape, with reference to the work of artist Rebecca Chesney. The text forms part of an ongoing conversation between Shirley and Chesney, which began at a Practising Place event in Liverpool in October 2013 and can be viewed online here.

Texts by Les Roberts, Emma Fraser and Steve Millington - examining issues of liminal space, urban obsolescence and spaces of vernacular creativity, and featuring the work of David Jacques, Victoria Lucas and William Titley - will be published over the next few months.
