Errant Bodies
Surface Tension Supplements
 
Following the publication of Surface Tension: Problematics of Site in 2003, a series of Supplements continue the artistic and theoretical program initiated in the original anthology. The Supplement series addresses questions of site-specific art, public and architectural space, and location-based practices. Each Supplement focuses on specific projects, developed by guest editors, accentuating the interdisciplinary cross-over of spatial art practice in a diversity of geographic contexts.
Broadly, the Surface Tension Supplements investigates location-based practices through writing, documentation, and field work, while questioning what role such practices can offer in defining contemporary culture and society. The Supplements act as a platform for generating conversations and collaborations, both on and off the page, engaging work that unsettles artistic assumptions.
How might the challenges of engaging with contemporary geographies become instrumental in defining relations between artist and public?
