While infrastructure is the seemingly invisible backdrop to our daily grind, it has a tendency to make itself apparent at the point of dysfunction or in its conspicuous absence. This is certainly how art field actors tend to experience art infrastructure – yet, perhaps it is time to take infrastructure more seriously, particularly in a moment where the future of the art field is either being formulated in terms of dystopian visions and pivots, or is entirely cancelled. Ivanova will argue that working towards future art fields through infrastructural praxis offers a surprisingly optimistic and generative alternative.<br />

<p>APG provided an important historical counter model anticipating many of the issues facing cultural workers today, in terms of seeking different forms of patronage, repurposing and reutilising different spaces, and thinking of ways to reorganize the art world.</p>
<p>Between 1966 and the turn of the eighties, APG negotiated approximately fifteen placements for artists lasting from a few weeks to several years. First within industries (often large corporations such as British Steel) and later within UK government departments such as the Department of the Environment and the Scottish Office, APG arranged that artists could work to an ‘open brief’. Their placements were not required to produce tangible results, but the engagement itself could potentially benefit both host organisations as well as the artists in the long-term.</p>
<p>Today, there is a trend of artists reclaiming, or finding recuperative possibilities in practicing within, corporations and companies. Do these practices hold the promise of a transformative model for today's art world? Re-examing APG’s initial gesture, through looking at the present, is timely now.</p>
