Public Art Forum: Art, Place and Community

May 19, 2015

Contemporary Art Society, Kings Cross and Central Saint Martins have announced an event entitled 'Public Art Forum: Art, Place and Community' scheduled for the 19th May 2015. The event 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.

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?

19th of May 2015, from 18.30—20.30

Lecture Hall E002, Central Saint Martins,
1 Granary Square, King's Cross,
London N1C 4AA
