In Certain Places is an arts collaboration between the Harris Museum and Art Gallery and the University of Central Lancaster (UCLAN). Led by artist/curators Elaine Speight and Charles Quick, the interactive programme of temporary artworks, residencies and events demonstrate how artists contribute to the form and functions of a place and explore alternative approaches to art, culture and urban development. The recently-pubished Subplots to a City: Ten Years of In Certain Places book explores how In Certain Places has developed new approaches to art, culture and urban development since its inception in 2003. Alongside images, project outlines and reflections from artists, audience members and collaborators, the book includes texts by specialists from various fields, including Owen Hatherley, Lubaina Himid, Sophie Hope, Paul O’Neill, Jonathan Vickery, Becky Shaw, John Newling, Charles Quick and Elaine Speight.
As a case study of dedicated socially-engaged and artist-centred practices, this book provides a useful resource for all those interested in place-based art, while also contributing to the critical discourse surrounding such practices.
