Watch Claire Doherty The New Rules of Public Art lecture, presented on June 11 by Public Art Norway (KORO) as part of their Critical Issues in Public Art series.
Since we first published The New Rules of Public Art in 2013, they have proved a catalyst for debate on many levels, encouraging discussions around what public art is, what it can be and where it can take place. The New Rule of Public Art are not a didactic set of ‘rules’ but a provocative set of possibilities, a booklet sized rabbit hole into new ways of thinking. Tomorrow afternoon (11 June) Claire Doherty, Director of Situations and author of the rules continues to share our manifesto by giving a public lecture in Oslo, challenging pre-conceptions about where, when and how public art takes place.
The lecture is one of three key events taking place as part of Slow Space – a programme of public art projects conceived of and produced by Situations for the Bjorvika area in the city of Oslo. The projects will unfold over time, through collective activity, annual events and interventions in close collaboration with existing organisations and artist-run and activist initiatives across the city.
