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.

Review Quotes
Spatialities explores qualitative geography as manifested in art and architecture. The chapter authors include an equal number of artists and art or cultural historians, several geographers, and an architect, most active, and the collection will find an appreciative audience in upper-level and graduate courses in art and architecture curricula.”
