Discussion with the audience

Discussion with the audience

After the success of the previous IACCCA symposium (Corporate Collections and Museums: Synergies and New Perspectives on Collaboration), which took place at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 2016, IACCCA’s 2018 symposium focused on the role and importance of site-specific commissions and art in public spaces.

The event brought together representatives of various sectors: from public, private and corporate commissioners to artists, architects and urban planners, as well as representatives of public interest groups. 

The symposium provided an occasion to expand and enrich our ways of thinking and engaging with large-scale art commissions and art in public spaces, and as such, to improve collaboration and heighten the discussion of why and how we could and should integrate art into our environments as well as the role of public art today and its recent and potential future directions.

The day was organised into two sessions, each featuring speakers who were invited to present a 20-minute paper. Presentations were followed by a moderated debate among panel members and a lively discussion open to audience participation.
