Public art, Urban Art, Art in the Public Domain
We curate, develop and deliver temporary and permanent public art projects and artwork commissions. We work with major infrastructure clients, developers, building and land owners, government authorities, architects, urban and landscape designers to plan for and integrate public art into new building and landscape projects, or to curate programs of temporary art for the public realm.
We can assist in many facets of public art from identifying sites and assessing locations, shortlisting or selecting artists through to managing the production and delivering your new artwork on-site.
We can prepare public art strategies and policy, guidelines, artist briefs, undertake condition audits, provide advice on selection of new work or removal or relocation of existing artworks, commission site specific artworks or assist you to work through options for your next urban art project.
We love to work as part of design teams to develop masterplans, identify opportunities for public art in new developments and to find the best artists for the job.
Short term, permanent or ephemeral, indoor or outdoor; sculpture, murals, integrated artworks, installations, digital and multi-media pieces, projections, sound works, water features, furniture, objects or decorative elements - anything is possible.
