Public Art in the City

10am - 12 noon, Harvard Graduate School of Design, 48 Quincy St, Cambridge, MA

Workshop

Wednesday April 19 2017



Public Art In The City is a three-part workshop and lecture program that examines the relationship between designers and visual artists and the politics of intervening in the city. The series will offer students and the public hands-on engagement with methods of intervention and critical debates about how the agency to transform the public realm is seized by artists, architects, curators, critics, and public sector actors. Through two workshops led by Assemble Studio of London and Flint Public Art Project, and a lecture by Nato Thompson, Artistic Director of Creative Time, this program offers a laboratory to ask how are agendas set within public art practice and how these agendas influence competing visions of the contemporary city.
