Our forthingcoming book, Life Between Borders: The Nomadic Life of Curators and Artists, is a critical assessment of the phenomenon of the artistic nomad. With multi-national bios being seen with progressing frequency in the art world, how do nomads identify themselves culturally and nationalistically, as they move from place to place?

The fourth title in our series of books that aim to stimulate a dialogue about issues in the arts, this book is directed to curators, artists, art historians, and others interested in the arts, sociology, and cultural migration, as well as anyone who has confronted issues of nomadism. Available now.

Contributors include: Melissa Chiu, Gitanjali Dang, Jimmie Durham, Mahita El Bacha Urieta, Mekbib Gemeda, Pascal Gielen, Lamia Joriege, Sebastien Sanz de Santamaria, Niels Van Tomme, and Yannis Ziogas.
