This chapter discusses the complex interrelationships between the people and the space in which they interact—a theme constantly explored throughout Lacy's work. Considering the implications of the city's urban setting on the nature of art, Lacy's conceptual art served to reimagine realities, opening up deeper connections between the artwork and its audience within the larger context of space. Space itself, Doreen Massey argues, is the product of interrelations—without space, there is no multiplicity, and vice versa. Lacy, in her Full Circle piece at the Daley Plaza, creates a conversational space in which people of various walks of life can convene in the “spaces between” and come away with a deeper, richer experience of their space (in this case, monuments), as well as each other.

Keywords:   urban setting, conceptual art, interrelations, space, multiplicity, Full Circle, Daley Plaza, spaces between
