SoHo: The Rise and Fall of an Artist's Colony by Richard Kostelanetz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


SoHo: The Rise and Fall of an Artists Colony documents how a little know industrial neighbourhood in New York unintentionally became - for a brief period - a nexus of creative activity. Such an ideal situation - totally unplanned could not last forever; the author shows how market forces squeezed out this art utopia, to be replaced by a shadow of its former self. The book will cover the building of a community, and the artistic activities within it, crossing many media.
