Social Contours: Art at the Borders

Artes Mundi recognises the importance of selecting diverse, thought provoking work around questions of place and community while also being aware of its shifting and complex relationship to the art market. In an increasingly globalised world where boundaries or borders are being configured, erased and redefined, artists can offer a vital and unexpected commentary on such processes. Here the values associated with subjectivity and identity, mass and high culture, remembering and forgetting, are often blurred and contested to become sites of resistance in pursuit of more expansive accounts of social and political life.
