This panel topic aims to examine the state of critical dialogue in contemporary public practice and ways in which this can be further supported, developed, examined and connected to conversations within visual arts practices. The discussion will be centered on identifying what constitutes criticality in public art, how can it be fostered and what's needed. The panel will be followed by a facilitated workshop leading to development of recommendations.
