With consideration of Artlink’s 40-year history, this edition will respond to the Archive to seek a broad view of the ways that artworks and artists operate in public, past and present, including: the construction of a city’s identity and imaginary through public sculpture and memorials; disruption of settler narratives and decolonisation of public monuments; public rituals and collective actions; activism and protest; post-human publics; the increased commercialisation of public space; COVID projects; LGBTQ+ communities, experiences and memorials; and the issues and the opportunities arising from gentrification.
