Art in a City

by John Willett - £15.00  Liverpool University Press (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846310829 | ISBN 10: 1846310822

This classic text, reissued to coincide with the 800th anniversary of the City of Liverpool, was originally published in 1967. It is a milestone in the examination of urban arts movements and also provides the starting point for looking at art in Liverpool from the 1960s to the present day.
 
Based on a survey commissioned by the Bluecoat Society of Arts, the author did something that had never before been done for a single city, and arguably has never been done since. He surveyed the history of the visual arts in the city, looked at the cultural and institutional environment in which they developed, and asked the people of Liverpool how they viewed the visual arts in Liverpool – both in terms of public art and art in enclosed spaces.
 
Willett saw a place with strong traditions in the visual arts, with new developments associated with the city’s emergence in the 1960s as a centre for music and poetry.
