Engaging with Publics: Conference Key Note address

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference presentation/ephemera


The key note address researched and presented by Gary Dufour explored a wide range of ways international artists are engaging with audiences in public spaces. The history, significance and impact of public works resonates over decades; some through the maintenance and care of installations and objects, and others by becoming part of local oral histories shared by communities long after the ‘objects’ depart. Gary Dufour paper focuses on practices fostering of interaction and engagement between artists and communities in several international projects from 1980 to the present, from artists Krzyztof Wodiczko, Suzanne Lacy, Jochen Gerz, Nettie Wild, Antony Gormley, Karyn Olivier, Do Ho Suh, Kara Walker and Gustavo Artigas.
