Overview

The Graduate Certificate in Art in Public Space (GC045) is available as an exit award of the Master of Arts (Art in Public Space) MC281.

In this program you are invited to add to your knowledge of theory and practice in art in public space. You are given the opportunity to contribute to the diversity of practice in this field where you may explore commissioned or uncommissioned work and, through this, contribute to the evolving practice in this field.

This program is one of the first of its kind in the world and the most comprehensive in course content and structure. It brings together both education and research, encouraging active collaboration between art and design practitioners and the community. You will address issues within art in public space that are central to current international cultural debate. You willl gain a broad theoretical and historical understanding of discourses and practices of public art, examining current definitions of real and virtual public space and training to deal with the practical and theoretical problems that arise from such definitions in relation to art.

You’ll explore alternative views of how art is presented and received in the urban context and address questions such as:

  • Where are the spaces that enable art to be an active interpretation, rather than decoration, of the city?
  • Who should define policies for public culture?
  • How can art negotiate the new spaces of the contemporary public sphere such as the internet?
