‘Public art revises the present of art and conjectures its future…’

Vito Acconci, performance artist and architect

‘Public art can be static, moving, part of the infrastructure or a projection of light and sound. It can last for a minute, a day, a year or a lifetime’.

Pavel Büchler, artist, writer and professor of fine art

‘Accessible work of any kind that cares about, challenges, involves, and consults the audience for or with whom it was made, respecting community and environment’.

Lucy Lippard, writer and critic

‘Public art is a form of street life, a means to articulate the implicit values of a city when its users occupy the place of determining what the city is’.

Malcolm Miles, professor of cultural theory
