Summary
Grand Arts, a contemporary art project space in Kansas City, MO, quietly but radically tested the limits of institutional and artistic support for nearly two decades. In helping more than 120 national and international artists realize projects considered too difficult, provocative, or complex to attract funding and support otherwise, the gallery achieved insider fame and deepseated respect as a bastion of generosity and risk. Now, as its final endeavor, Grand Arts gamely interrogates its values, methods, outcomes and legacies in 'Problems and Provocations: Grand Arts 1995?2015'?an indispensable source book on creativity, collaboration and what it takes to realize a major work of contemporary art. 00The volume documents 30 key projects from Grand Arts? previously unexcavated history, by artists such as Alice Aycock, Patricia Cronin, Ellie Ga, Alfredo Jaar, Isaac Julien, Annie Lapin, Laurel Nakadate, Filip Noterdaeme, William Pope L., Tim Rollins & K.O.S., Emily Roysdon, Tavares Strachan and the Propeller Group. Recent annotations and previously untold stories by artists and collaborators complement an archival deepdive of photographs, artist proposals, sketches, notes, internal documents and items of private correspondence
