Overview

The Graduate Diploma in Art in Public Space (GD070) is available as an exit award of the Master of Arts (Art in Public Space) (MC079).

Address issues within art in public space that are central to current international cultural debate. Encouraging active collaboration between art and design practitioners and the community, this degree brings together both education and research. You'll gain a broad understanding of discourses and practices of public art by examining current definitions of public space, and learning to deal with the challenges that arise from such definitions.

Explore multiple views of how art is presented and received in the urban context, addressing 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?
