The Fifth Floor
Ideas Taking Space
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
The Fifth Floor examines curatorial strategies that have envisaged participation in the arts from the 1960s to today through a range of essays from contemporary experts in the field, including Nicholas Bourriaud, Claire Bishop, and Lars Bang Larsen. Taking The Fifth Floor exhibit at the Tate Liverpool as a case study, this volume considers how artistic approaches accommodate their curatorial modes through numerous interviews and texts by participating artists. Finally, it offers full-color illustrations of installation views and documentation in order to further explore how radical curatorial strategies and approaches to exhibition cross over into the uncharted territory among art, education, and audience development.
