New writing at ixia

Over on the ixia website there are three new essays on public art, commissioned by Sophie Hope.  Of particular interest to me is David Patten’s piece on the commissioning of artists in the development process.

“He argues that keeping artists at one remove from the development process, sheltered by agencies and curators, can add to continuing ignorance and the sense of unease over the artist’s role. ”

Ixia welcome comments on these essays, as well as suggestions for new articles and contributions.
