What is the quality of participation in contemporary art and performance? Is it damaged by cultural policies introduced since the 1997 election of New Labour - and especially since the 2008 recession - which have 'entrepreneurialized' artists, cut arts funding and cultivated corporate philanthropy and the 'creative industries'? Might it contribute to urban gentrification, particularly in London? Has its democratic potential been at all fortified by artists' innovations in crowdfunding, pop-ups, networking, installation art and immersive theatre; their engagements with ideas of home and folk culture; and their practices of labour and craftsmanship? How can it enhance understanding of relationships between the individual and the group? How can it improve social welfare and nurture social life?

Fair Play: Art, Performance and Neoliberalism explores these questions through the work of important contemporary artists and organizations including Marcus Coates, Phil Collins, Jeremy Deller, Michael Landy, Grayson Perry, Rachel Whiteread, Lone Twin, Punchdrunk, Tate Modern and the National Theatre.

Review:

"At once balanced and uncompromising, Fair Play: Art, Performance and Neoliberalism provides a clear sighted look at the negotiations artists have to make, and the interventions they continue to make, in the neoliberal landscape of contemporary London. It's a bracing read." - Ric Knowles, Professor of Theatre Studies, University of Guelph, Canada 
 
'...we witness another kind of political performance at work on the part of Harvie as a passionate and skilled cultural materialist critic. In Fair Play, Harvie models – for scholars, for artists, for activists – how we might participate with open eyes, make situated arguments to policymakers, and work with the material specificities of performance to craft more equitable futures.' - Laura Levin, Contemporary Theatre Review 
 
'Because Harvie is driven by the dialectic inherent in this pairing, the book is admirably balanced. It asks readers to weigh the evidence, and to think about how the arts are and are not better off—and how we, as humans living in a world made more humane by art, are and are not better off—under the status quo. Fair Play ultimately makes a strong yet never depressing case for the 'not,' and Harvie leaves us with real hope that something can be done.' - Kim Solga, Theatre Survey
 
'[This] book is a vital read for all scholars of contemporary performance, particularly those concerned with socially engaged art and performance.' - Claire Bowler, New Theatre Quarterly
 
'Fair Play is a bold and confident book, its argument incisive yet hopeful... The rich range of examples that the chapters explore - organized as interrogations of labor, entrepreneurialism, location, and economics - are drawn chiefly from London, but her concerns about the incursions of neoliberal capitalism speak to us all.' - Susan Bennett, Theatre Journal
 
'The book is engaging and develops fluidly, articulating its theoretical voice, interspersed with artistic examples which both illuminate the points made and provide an opportunity to revisit notable work, exploring their material surroundings and contextualising them in an age of neoliberalism.' - Natalie Lee, The Journal of Applied Theatre and Performance

Book Description:
