CAS Talks—Public Art Forum: Art, Place and Community with Melanie Dod, formerly of muf architecture/art, 19 May 2015 – 3 of 5

24 May 2015

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.
