Taking a copy of Su Braden’s 1978 book, Artist’s and People, as a starting point, Heather Peak Morison from Studio Morison will talk about her experience of working outside the gallery and look back at the history of artists in communities, new towns, schools and civic spaces. Both practical and philosophical, she will explore the conditions, the challenges and the attraction of working in the public realm. Open to the public and especially relevant to artists, curators, architects and potential commissioners, the talk will conclude with a tour of the work, The Long Afternoon of Earth.
