Summary
"A show challenging conventional understandings of public art, 'Culture in Action' had a new social agenda and reworked what an exhibition of contemporary art might be. Through eight projects by artists, initiated in the early 1990s and developed in collaboration with local people, the intention was to engage diverse groups over time, in addition to the visiting public in 1993." -- back cover
