Overview

The iconic nature of art can alter the way we perceive and re-member a space. But what areas are and are not appropriate for public art installations? How does art in public space differ from art in a museum? In their presentation, Fitch and Bedat will explore the criteria on which decisions should be based to place art in public spaces, and discuss existing precedents to illustrate successful public art installations. Presented by Jonathan Fitch and Claire Bedat, both of the Landscape Architecture Bureau.
