Claire Doherty is a curator and writer, and the Director of Situations, a commissioning and research programme based at the University of the West of England, Bristol. She lectures widely on curating, commissioning, art and place, and has published essays on a broad diversity of artists.
"Claire Doherty's Situation offers a scholarly yet accessible cross-disciplinary mapping out of the complex discursive interpenetrations of notions of site, public sphere, social space, location-driven research processes and related issues, from the perspectives of artists, curators, art historians, critics, theorists and other cultural producers. The five sections comprising the book propose useful ideational constellations, generating a trans-historical (i.e. non-linear/anti-chronological) interplay of excerpted artist writings, critical texts, curatorial frameworks and theoretical discourses from the start of the 1960s to the present, enlivening the conversation about what it means to be situational." - Joshua Decter, Critic and Curator, Director of the Master of Public Art Studies Program (Art in the Public Sphere), USC Roski School of Fine Arts, Los Angeles "This excellent and stimulating book revisits the notions of site and space to underline the increasing importance of situations, opening and thinking about new ways of making and curating art." - Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects, Serpentine Gallery, London
