Call for Questions: How is public art commissioned?

Our annual Artist Voices event is back later this summer and will focus on ‘how is public art commissioned’.

This year we will deliver the event online to work around lockdown restrictions. Through a series of interviews hosted by independent producer Katie Daley-Yates we will speak with artists Anne-Marie Culhane, Denman + Gould, Nayan Kulkarni and Hew Locke.

These four nationally and internationally renowned artists have worked regularly in public space undertaking a variety of different public art commissions across different contexts. Rather than hear from the producer or commissioner this event will provide a unique insight into the world of commissioning from the artist’s perspective. We want this event to be as useful as possible.
