Arcade: Artists and Place-making is a compelling documentation by artists, academics, architects and writers of the work surrounding the regeneration of the Gorbals. Now at the tail end of this redevelopment, Arcade surveys and assesses these projects, and also raises wider questions about the role and impact artists have in the regeneration of urban spaces. 'Event:Space' considers an artwork yet to be created by the artist Stephen Hurrel. It considers public art within the context of preconceptions of the street and street-corner and also the wider implications that new media technologies have had for the street as a space of socialisation. Drawing on these ideas and considering Hurrel's proposal for his street-corner site, 'Event'Space' suggests that new media artworks have the potential to re-invigorate street corner societies.
