Open Space: Art in the Public Realm in London 1995-2005 Ed. Jemima Montagu Arts Council of England and Central London Partnership, 2007 This disappointing collection of case studies is a sad reection on the state of public-art commissioning. Including numerous recent architect/artist collaborations - only a handful of which are at all compelling - this looks to be mostly art by committee. You have to wade through an appalling graphic layout in this coffee-tableformat volume to find the few worthwhile examples and glean an understanding of the commissioning process - which apparently is not working. The book is an apt reection of its content.
