Public Art Statement for University of Bristol Temple Quarter Campus
Field Art Projects were appointed in spring 2012 to develop and deliver a public art strategy and programme for the University of Bristol’s residential site at Stoke Bishop, north Bristol. The project culminates with the launch of Sarah Staton’s new work Edith & Hans this week.
Field Art Projects are advising the Design Team for the new Bristol Arena on their art strategy and the art programme being delivered alongside the building.
Jes Fernie and Theresa Bergne, Field Art Projects, co-curated Future Perfect, a public art programme for the Hengrove Ward, a residential area in south Bristol, built primarily in the post-war era.
Join us for What is collaboration? the second of a series of events as part of Assembly, an online learning and development programme for curators, producers and public art practitioners that explore issues and good practice in relation to the expanded field of public art.
The further we move into a sphere of practice that places collaboration and co-creation at its heart, the more urgent questions relating to ethics become. Is it ok for curators and artists to receive a fee for a collaborative project that is co-authored with members of a community, while those members remain unremunerated? Is our work empowering or tokenistic? Who is the ‘author’ of these projects and what do we mean by ‘participation’, ‘collaboration’, ‘engagement’ and ‘co-creation’? How murky are these terms and who do they serve?
What is collaboration? is chaired by Matteo Lucchetti, Curator, art historian and writer at Visible Project. Speakers include Samra Mayanja, artist and writer whose work spans writing, performance and film and Kerry Campbell, Sheffield based independent contemporary art curator.
Assembly has been developed by UP Projects in collaboration with Public Art Network UK (PAN) and is generously supported by The Art Fund. The programme has been put together by Jes Fernie, Elisabeth Del Prete, Theresa Bergne and Emma Underhill.
All Assembly events will take place in The Hall, UP Projects’ digital participation space.More news
