Australia + New Zealand

This issue offers a vivid snapshot of the state of public art in Australia and New Zealand today. Our guest editor, Anne Loxley, worked with native authors in the region to present a sampling of the programs, artists, and ideas in play in these two densely active countries. As a curator of public art, Loxley is driven by the goals of artistic and design excellence, engaged communities, and satisfied commissioners. These ideals underpin much of this exciting, international issue.

From cinematic moments to sand drawings that disappear with the tide, from reclaiming key moments in Aboriginal history to major work by Daniel Buren matched with roaming zebras, this issue of Public Art Review is packed with unique projects and perspectives, including:

  • Alan Gibbs' The Farm, where giraffes roam amongst works by Richard Serra, Andy Goldsworthy, Sol Lewitt + Anish Kapoor
  • The 40-year history of John Kaldor projects beginning with the iconic 1969 wrapping of Little Bay by Christo and Jeanne-Claude
  • The powerfully subversive public works of Fiona Foley and Reuben Paterson
  • Jaw-dropping commissions for Melbourne’s lanes, roads + motorways
  • Analysis of an unrealized project by Jennifer Turpin illuminating the complexities of public art processes
  • A tour of temporary public art projects in Australia's capital cities
  • An interview with Australian contemporary art expert Leon Paroissien and Finnish-born  curator and critic Pontus Kyander revealing key issues in the public sphere.
In addition to our coverage of Australia and New Zealand, we survey historic and contemporary public art in Maryland (our featured state) and have contributors report in on the latest from Vancouver, Charlotte, and St. Louis. As always, there's a generous helping of book reviews, news, recent projects + publications to keep you in the know about the growing field of contemporary public art.
