" Policy Matters"

Policy Matters examines art production as a particular temporal and spatial series of social relationships organized, legitimated and circulated through administration, funding and publicity. With its lively mix of scholarly essays and cultural journalism, Policy Matters contributes to domestic and international understandings of the distinctive address of Canadian arts policy and organized art. As a historical and theoretical engagement with governance practices, this volume documents and discusses:
• the self-administrations of the artist-run centre movement;
• key accountability logics of arts funding and cultural policy;
• mediation and representational struggles over how art is “cared for.”
