Annotation The study of urban space has grown rapidly from the confluence of literary, cinematic & cultural studies. Theories of urban space have, in the past few years, been the focus of a great deal of work by scholars in cultural geography, urban studies & critical theory. This is one of the first books to offer a coherent perspective on this newly developing area of study, analyzing the relationship between theories of urban space & literary & visual representations of the city. Following an introduction that maps out the theoretical terrain, outlines the principal issues, themes & arguments & defines the key terms, the contributors discuss: theoretical space & representation - visual culture & spectacle - class & capital - community & public space - nation, Diaspora & belonging

We face forward : art from West Africa today by Koyo Kouoh( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To celebrate the 2012 Olympics and offer a global welcome to the many visitors who will be visiting the UK and, in particular, the North West, Manchester's two main galleries will collaborate for the first time on a major exhibition of contemporary art drawn from countries in West Africa. Taking place across three locations, Manchester Art Gallery, Platt Hall (Gallery of Costume) and the Whitworth Art Gallery and Park, the exhibition will feature painting, photography, textiles, sculpture, video and sound work - from a wide range of practitioners whose work is internationally acclaimed, but relatively little seen in the UK. The title of the exhibition is taken from a speech by Ghana's first president, Kwame Nkrumah, made in 1960. Stating his resistance to cold war super powers, Nkrumah's full quote is 'We face neither East nor West: we face forward.' The exhibition takes its direction from Nkrumah's statement of independence, deriving inspiration from his sense of West African cultural dynamism. This publication will include biographies and colour images of all the artists in the exhibition plus the musicians, performers and other artists who are contributing to the public programme. It will feature an introductory essay by the curators of the exhibition and a number of contextual essays by curators and writers who specialise in African art.--Cornerhouse

Johnny Shand Kydd : Hydra by Johnny Shand Kydd( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As an emerging photographer, Shand Kydd became known for capturing the incipient community of YBAs (Young British Artists) during the 1990s. He created hundreds of now iconic black and white images of his artist friends and has continued to track the progress of figures such as Sarah Lucas, Tracey Emin, Gilbert and George and Damien Hirst. This selection of works from Shand Kydd?s extensive and varied portfolio focuses on his yearly trips to the Greek island of Hydra at the invitation of the art collector and Whitworth patron, Pauline Karpidas. With an informal, convivial and occasionally poignant eye, Shand Kydd captures the annual summer confluence of invited members of the international art world, a coming together of rising talent, established luminaries, partners and family members
