'Column is a bi-annual periodical published by Artspace that acts as a site for the critical contextualization, elaboration and extension of Artspace's ongoing program of exhibitions, performances, residencies, and public programs, as well as providing space for response to related developments outside Artspace.' from the Artspace website

'Spaces of Art: institutional and post-institutional practices in contemporary art engages questions crucial to the future of art institutions and their relationship to contemporary practice in the 21st century. Exploring issues underpinning some of the key curatorial trajectories of the past decade, conditions informing collective production and individual labour, and the shifting relationship of artists, curators, critics and cultural producers toward working within and outside of institutions, Spaces of Art presents concrete discursive contexts and speculative propositions for a range of ongoing experimental practices in Australia, the Asia-Pacific and beyond.' from the back cover
