The Geographies of Art and Architecture
Spatialities: The Geographies of Art and Architecture draws on a distinguished panel of artists, cultural theorists, architects and geographers to offer a nuanced conceptual framework for understanding the ever-evolving spatial orderings that materially constitute our world. With chapters covering a wide range of topics, including the interstitial, the liminal and the relational processes of networks, accumulations and assemblage as possibilities for spatial reflection, this volume shows space to be less a defining category and more an abstract terrain whose boundaries may be continually probed and contested.

'This reader explores qualitative geography as manifested in art and architecture. A summary of the book’s appeal is found in the editor’s introduction: ‘The book’s range of disciplinary perspectives offers different approaches through which to consider the critical aspects of space and its span incorporates contemplative and academic strategies as well as conversations and reflections on practice’. The chapter authors include an equal number of artists and art or cultural historians, several geographers, and an architect, most active in the United Kingdom.[…] The collection likely will find an appreciative audience in upper-level and graduate courses in art and architecture curricula.' – Katherine Cowan, Senior Reference Librarian, Decker Library, Maryland Institute College of Art
