Noplaceness: Art in a Post-Urban Landscape

Noplaceness is now available from www.atlantaartnow.com and from amazon.com.

The book is in English, Portuguese and Chinese, and deals with some of the themes that have been dealt with extensively on this now all but dormant blog: the fate of art in the world's regions, how the regions link to one another in the digital era, how the world's different subcultures are to communicate messages intelligibly to one another now that it is technologically feasible to do so almost instantaneously.

It deals with these topics using the example of some thirty-six artists living and working in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Co-authors are Cinqué Hicks, Catherine Fox and Jerry Cullum. It is one of two books I have co-authored this year, the other being In the Eye of the Muses, to which I contributed a long chapter on Hale Woodruff's murals at Clark Atlanta University.
