Art in Public Places: The Archive of the PADT - Gallery Discussion

A one-off gallery discussion will be led by exhibition curator Stephen Feeke and HMI
archivist Claire Sawyer in the company of Public Art Development Trust (PADT)
commissioned artists Hannah Collins, Vong Phaophanit, Michael Sandle, and Bill

This event will explore individual experiences of working with the PADT as
well as in the field of public commissions more generally.
As one of the first organisations of its kind, the PADT, established in 1983, defined
public art in the UK for some twenty years. The archive of the PADT was acquired by
the Henry Moore Institute in 2005 and this exhibition traces projects generated by the
Trust – realised and unrealised – featuring artists such as Julian Opie, Cornelia Parker
and Katarina Fritsch. The material gives a unique insight into the evolution of public art
and charts the major shift from permanent bronze and stone figures to temporary
interventions, installations and projections. The exhibition also gives a snapshot of how an organisation is represented through its archive, with the complex genesis of sometimes controversial projects played out through ephemeral and documentary material.
