AboutFind out more
An arts organisation, producing house, publisher and critical think-tank on public art, Situations grew extraordinary experiences out of place from 2002-2017.
Our work always began with a place – a situation, a circumstance, people, history, or untold story – taking us to many different cities, towns and villages across the UK and overseas. We believed that artists of all forms and all media can be the charismatic agents of change and we invested in and creatively supported their process of making. We sought out opportunities for them to connect directly with places and we invited them to make new works with us as their creative producers and with the audience at the centre of how the idea unfolded.
“Public art not a wayfinder then, but an escape vehicle to explore things as if they might be different.” Claire Doherty, founder Director, Situations
