Some Reflections on Urban Public Art Today

Some Reflections on Urban Public Art Today

Ken Lum

 

Today, iconic public artworks, both permanent and temporary, are defining visual elements of many urban landscapes—from the LOVE sculpture (1976) in Philadelphia to The Gates installation (2005) in Central Park. This has not always been the case. While art in the broader sense has always possessed a public dimension due to its requirement of an audience, public art was not formalized as a category of discourse until the mid-nineteenth century.

PUSH THE BUTTON.

PUSH THE BUTTON.

JENNIFER BERMAN <---> AVA HASSINGER


push the button
countless miles of non-verbal lingo
a shiny new companion
moving across the rug by the seat of our pants
stirring something in a small bowl
using a large utensil
one golden opportunity
to plumb the breath
physical distance need not be an obstacle
two paths seem to be open from now on
