      Let’s Go Outside: Making Art Public Symposium

      Let’s Go Outside: Making Art Public Co-presented by Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) and Monash Art Projects (MAP) Friday 30 & Saturday 31 August 2019 Let’s Go Outside: Making Art Public will reflect on the growing interest in making and presenting art outside of the conventional gallery context and explore the opportunities and complexities of realising art in the public realm. This two-day symposium, comprising keynote presentations, panel discussions, case studies and breakaway sessions, will traverse models and motivations for commissioning art outside the gallery; consider how art impacts the physical and social character of a place; incorporate Indigenous ways of knowing, connection to site and diverse histories; review the critical context and reception of art in the public realm; and speculate on the development of new and more inclusive commemorative public artworks. Let’s Go Outside: Making Art Public will span ephemeral, temporal and virtual projects, social and participatory practices, and variously scaled urban and regional projects. Participants include artists, designers, art consultants, policymakers, commissioners and curators.  Program includes over 40 speakers from across Australia and beyond, including 2 keynotes, 4 panels and 5 breakout sessions.
