Explore the different aspects of contemporary art in the public and urban landscape

The day will centre around discussions on public art and urban regeneration, questioning whether projects are led by a commitment to the community or whether they present corporate decoy strategies.

‘The Street’ as a programmable space will be explored and how this has manifested in post-conflict society. Considering the audiences for such initiatives and how success is measured will also provide an opportunity to think about how models can be adapted and developed for future projects.

This seminar will unite two Subject Specialist Networks: the SSN for British Art led by Tate and the Paul Mellon Centre for British Art and the SSN for Contemporary Art led by the Contemporary Art Society.

This event is free and includes lunch and refreshments.

This is a collaborative event run by the British Art Network and Contemporary Art Society.
