Public Art Now conversations is an exciting new online event, running from 24-26 June 2021, exploring the changing landscape of public art now and in the coming decades.
Technological University Dublin and the Grangegorman Development Agency are delighted to invite your attendance as part of Public Art Now conversations, a structured programme of six online conversations led by Irish and international practitioners.
As a varied set of art practices, public art provides opportunities for collective participation and self-expression, historical reflection and community dialogue. It contributes to our social, spatial and political topologies by proposing new social models, enhancing physical infrastructure and engaging with design. As we enter the third decade of the 21st century, now more than ever we collectively face unprecedented social and environmental challenges. The recent COVID-19 pandemic, along with our present geological epoch of the Anthropocene, unchecked globalisation and resurgent nationalistic forces, provide new contexts through which to consider public arts’ role in society.
Within this context, Public Art Now conversations will explore how public art responds to the complexity of our cultural and natural environments and how current policy and theory support these actions.
Participation in this online event is free of charge but must be booked in advance through Eventbrite.
