London Arts Café NEWSLETTER

(members get a free copy - 2.50 to non members. 2 issues per year.)

Articles, news and reviews on all forms of urban art have been published in the biannual newsletter. Papers have ranged from the comparison between London and Milwaukee in photographs, to architecture (bridges and tower blocks), via design (Marlboro City advertising campaign), the interaction of artist and architect on a Paris housing estate, computer modelling on cities, as well as publishing the text of LAC exhibitions.

From January 2001, we have had an upgraded newsletter with a new editor and a new designer. As well as publishing in colour, issues have been based around themes such as 'Arts and Regeneration', 'Artists and 11 September' ...

The last edition of Art and Cities, ISSN 1742-1837, edited for its life by Cathy Ross, was a double-isue, 19/20, 'The London Arts Cafe: Retrospective, 1996-2008' with accounts of the people involved, exhibitions, Commisions and Residencies, publications, studio visits and events, workshops and study day and web activities it organised, along with the fifth of a series of 'Artists Answer Questions' with Mark Cazalet. Copies of this edition (32pp, ca 80 illustrations) are still available, for £5.20 plus postage (2nd class £1.17)
