Becoming Public Art: Site-Specificity and Public Art
Becoming Public Art: Working Models & Case Studies for Art in Public is a nine-week virtual summit presented by the City of Markham, in partnership with ART+PUBLIC UnLtd. In a series of virtual sessions open to the public, professionals in the field will present the broad range of perspectives that shape public art making today.
In Session 7: Site-Specificity and Public Art, we will explore the following questions: What does site-specificity mean if we think about “site” as an ever-changing condition? Urban sites are in flux, with changing geographies and demographics, how can this be addressed in public art practice? How to cultivate conversations about the site’s past, present, and future?
