ATLAS Arts is pleased to be hosting a screening of Creative Time’s 2014 Summit live from Stockholm. It is a collaboration between New York City-based Creative Time and Public Art Agency Sweden.
It will be held in ATLAS’ office in Portree on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 November.
Summit: Stockholm – the first iteration of the annual conference to take place outside of New York—will focus on expanded public practice, investigating uses and potentialities of art in the public sphere, with a focus on practices with social and political implications. The Summit will pose such questions as: Who is art in the public sphere for and what is it supposed to do? How does art produce debate, contribute to a sense of the civic, or perhaps, more cynically, merely perpetuate the status quo? And more generally, who is the city for and how can our public spheres and its arts work across a heterogeneous space?
The programme will feature sections on: Nationalisms, Performing the City, Activating Public Space, Art in the Age of Surveillance and Migrations and will include keynote speakers, films and performances.
The full schedule can be found here and the full list of speakers here.
