Title: Activating Space: New Program Models for Participatory and Temporal Art in the Public Realm
Author: Laubscher, Marissa Anne
Abstract: Grounded in public and social practice art history and theory, this document examines emerging program & curatorial models for the presentation of participatory and temporal art in the public realm. The document provides an overview of the context from which participatory and temporal art has emerged, as well as the curatorial and organizational models that support these projects. Included is a literature review of theoretical texts on participatory art and culture, social practice art, and contemporary public art theory. Also discussed are important considerations that influence the successful administration of participatory and temporal art works in the public realm. An overview of current temporary public art programs is provided along with analysis regarding the strengths and limitations of various models. This research is meant to provide perspective on the past and present context for participatory and temporal art in the public realm and to serve as a guide for future program planning.
