This is a web-based recontextualisation of the 2007 work Statement of the Obligations and Non-Obligations of Public Art commissioned by and sited within Intersections, based at Newcastle University. Click the link above to view the work. To read the full text in its original capacity, click here.

Intersections generates critical dialogue about public art practice and develops pioneering practice-based and theoretical research. Intersections is a project which links Fine Art at Newcastle University with the wider cultural sector through events, research projects and generating debate. Drawing together practitioners, theorists, sector organisations, policy makers and the wider public, Intersections examines issues arising from the creative friction inherent in the interaction of public art practice, policy and public space.
