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.

Join us on Thursday 17 June at midday for this fourth and final event in the series 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.
We’ve spent the last year interacting with the world through our screens. Is this the point at which ‘public art’ becomes something that is primarily experienced through the digital world, rather than in the ‘physical’ world?

Is the future of public art online? is chaired by Siddarth Khajuria, Senior Producer at Barbican. Speakers include Soledad Gutiérrez Rodríguez, Executive Producer at st_age (TBA21), and Penny Rafferty, member, and co-founder of Black Swan DAO.
All Assembly events will take place in The Hall, UP Projects’ digital participation space. Sign up here.
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.More news
