Art in Public Spaces and New York’s leading role

Art in Public Spaces and New York’s leading role

This panel discussion addresses the singularities of outdoors urban sculpture in the United States and, specifically, the commitment of New York City to public art.

What is public art? When is a sculpture considered a public artwork? How do we relate to works of art that have been made for a specific place? What adds to the creation of a work a scenario like the city of New York? The panel addresses the singularities of public sculpture in the United States and, specifically, the commitment of New York City to public art. The participants also discuss, among other outstanding projects, the experience of the Spanish artist Jorge Palacios and one of his large-scale sculptures, Link, installed in front of the Flatiron Building, from August 16 to November 6, 2018.
