Fall Talks With Public Art Fund
Can you believe its almost fall? The Public Art Fund has announced a roster of fall talks that sound pretty darn cool. They usually sell out, so plan for your autumnal revisit to the cerebral and grab a ticket!
Square Pegs, Round Holes: From White Cube to Public Sphere
From iconic museums to contemporary galleries, works of art are often conceived and presented in dialogue with the exhibition spaces where they are shown. While invisible, the history of that context shapes the way we come to see and understand art. Within the dizzying visual backdrop of buildings, people, streets, advertising, and the broader landscape, the public sphere offers a densely layered and complex history. An ever-changing public realm has little regard for the conventions of art history and the white cube, and calls on artworks to communicate beyond the traditional exhibition space.
For the Fall 2013 Talks at the New School, Public Art Fund invites artists whose diverse practices have encompassed significant work in gallery and museum contexts, as well as in the public sphere, to share their experiences of working in both the white cube and the public realm.
