Join us for a panel discussion exploring the processes of commissioning public art. Our panel of leaders in the field will explore how public art comes to be, the myriad motivations of commissioners and the critical context of public art within the contemporary art ecology. Speakers represent a wide range of practices, from public art interventions in the urban sphere to artists as commissioners, and curators who develop public art through forms of social activation. The evening will take an expansive look at the highly visible but often controversial practice of producing public art for today’s communities. Book now to secure your place.
