words@bld50 by Architects for Peace: “Art + Social Space”

June 3, 2010 7:00 pm

To remove art from the privileged domain of the gallery and make it available for general consumption can be a powerful act, and its capacity to generate controversy is clearly alive and well in Melbourne.

Four practitioners will explore their experiences of creating art in public spaces, drawing on examples of their own work, and reflecting on the possibilities, challenges, freedom and limitations they have encountered.

Elisabeth Weissensteiner, Ammon Beyerle, Karen Casey and Maggie McCormick. Chaired by Alex Selenitsch.
