Sarah Schultz, Curator of Public Practice, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis

In the last decade there has been an upsurge of interest from both cultural and civic sectors in the United States to animate and reimaginate the public sphere. How are artists creating spaces of possibility and negotiation for interaction and living with one another? How does this make our cities more vibrant places to live? What does it mean for the role and mission of cultural institutions? Sarah Schultz will talk about Open Field and other experimental public art projects in the US that suggest new creative models of what it means to be public.
