Claire Doherty, Director of Situations, and Magdalena Malm, Director of Public Art Agency Sweden, joined Nato Thompson, Chief Curator of Creative Time, and artist Heather Morison to discuss the risks, delights and challenges of producing new progressive forms of public art.

What’s at stake when producing art in the public realm? How are artists shaking up the lifespan of public artworks? What is the impact of social media on the nature of public engagement with artworks? And what future do we imagine for a more progressive approach to public art commissioning?

With streaming partners tuning in from across the world, from Cape Town, Korea, New York, the Isle of Skye to Margate and Worcester, this is tomorrow’s live broadcast of the event allowed remote audiences to join the conversation. Two  responses written by our bursary winners will be published shortly on the Public Art (Now) blog.

If you missed it last week you can now watch this dynamic conversation in full below.
