HA 3BB: ART IN PUBLIC SPACES

This module examines work placed initially outside the gallery space from the 1960’s onwards, particularly those works which challenge traditional notions surrounding the term ‘public art’. It will consider why the term public art is problematic and explore evolving terms from the C21st such as critical spatial practice, site specific art and interventions. It will also consider the blurring of boundaries between the disciplines of art, architecture, urban planning and photography and the issues surrounding the documentation of this type of work which often occurs back in the gallery space.
