Abstract

Littoral Art and Communicative Action traces the development of Bruce Barber’s work from the mid-1990s to the present. Through essays, artist’s statements, interviews and with a concluding “squat” intervention by Gregory Sholette, the book presents a theoretically sophisticated version of community art that focuses on the practices of gift giving and communicative action as means to foster progressive social and cultural transformation.
