Event Description

To mark a new artwork by Turner Prize winning collective Assemble at Seven Sisters Station, Art on the Underground curator Kiera Blakey will discuss the role of contemporary public art today.
 
Commissioned by Art on the Underground and due for completion in Summer 2017 the artwork challenges traditional notions of public art as a monument or formal sculpture. The artists have developed a shop unit that has lain derelict on the Seven Sisters Station approach for 20 years. From rebuilding the structure, to an interim use as a ceramic studio, the unit will eventually be returned to function as a commercial unit. In relation to this turn in public art, Kiera will discuss the different modes of public art today and why work like Assemble’s is more important than ever.
