Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Art, Money, Parties is a collection of essays based on papers given at a conference of the same name held at Tate Liverpool in November 2002. It sets out to describe and evaluate the development of new forms of art patronage and display evident in such recurrent events as biennials, "culturalquarter" projects for urban regeneration, novel galleries of contemporary art, and production sponsors (such as the Saatchi Gallery and the Baltic). The scope of the collection is international and its aim is to map and examine the globalisation of art's political-economy.Contributors: Jeremy Valentine (Queen Elizabeth College, Edinburgh), Andrew Brighton (Tate Modern), Sadie Coles (Gallery owner), Rory Francis (Manchester Metropolitan University), Paul Usherwood (University of Northumbria), Stewart Home (artist and writer), Lewis Biggs (ex-Director, Tate Liverpool),and Jonathan Harris (University of Liverpool).
