The Public: the gallery for the future to close

"When designs for The Public were first put forward in 1994, the gallery was intended to revitalise the community. Some residents, however, saw the building as an extravagance and a waste of money. Criticism steadily grew as the project ran into difficulties, with debts rising and funding falling short. The venue had to be rescued on more than one occasion by government grants or Arts Council funding. Earlier this week Mr Cooper described the arts centre as a 'giant shoe box' and said it should not have been built when it was by previous council leaders in his Labour group. He said he had always had doubts privately about the building. Since The Public opened, however, visitor numbers have steadily grown for theatre, music and comedy performances, as well as exhibitions."

e-flux: an international visual art network

"Established in January 1999 in New York, e–flux is an international network which reaches more than 90,000 visual art professionals on a daily basis through its website, e–mail list and special projects. Its news digest – e–flux announcements – distributes information on some of the world's most important contemporary art exhibitions, publications and symposia.

The daily digest is put together in cooperation with nearly two thousand leading international museums, art centers, foundations, galleries, biennials and art journals. Our focused and selective approach to the information we choose to distribute has been rewarded by an exceptionally high degree of attention and responsiveness from our readers."
