Abstract (English)

This book documents an exhibition/event organized by Mary Jane Jacob for the Arts Festival of Atlanta. The curatorial intent of this project was to develope multiple audiences for contemporary art by foregrounding interactive, participatory and community-based practices. This book contains ten essays directly and indirectly concerned with significance of "conversation" in art. Topics discussed include museum practice, audience participation, contextual contingency, institutional critique and food as art. Includes six artists' statements on works presented–installation, performance, community outreach and internet art. Brief biographical notes on contributors. 30 bibl. ref.
