CAS Talks—Public Art Forum: Art, Place and Community with Stéphanie Delcroix, Curator, and Eva Pfannes, Ooze Architects
Watch the lecture
Contemporary Art Society, London
Held on 19 May 2015 at Central Saint Martins, King's Cross, London N1C 4AA.
Whether part of a regeneration programme or on a green field site, today public art projects form a key part of any planning process. But how can artists and curators lay down a creative precedent that shapes future development? How can cultural programming build bridges between existing and new communities? And can temporary projects infiltrate the public realm in ways that traditional permanent public art cannot?
Co-hosted by the Contemporary Art Society, Kings Cross and Central Saint Martins, a panel will explore some of the most innovative public art programmes in the UK today, discussing the role of artists in developing creative approaches to landscape design.
