What is public art?

Public art encompasses all expressions of contemporary art which relates to public space. The last decade public art has evolved from objects to also operate on relational and conceptual levels. At the same time art has become part of urban development projects, where the artists contribute to a larger process in collaboration with other disciplines. In the last years the Art Agency has developed freer formats, such as temporary projects and urban development. We continuously also produce permanent art for new buildings that will be used for governmental purposes and art collections for public spaces.
