Transcript of Public Art, Installation Art, Environmental Art, Sustainable Art, Site Specific Art

Public Art
could be defined as an ability or capacity of something to be maintained or to sustain itself.

Sustainable art
may also be understood as art that is
produced with consideration for the wider impact of the work in relationship to its environment
(social, economic, biophysical, historical and cultural).

Sustainable art adopts a critical position
towards some key figures in the
land art movement of the 1960s
, who showed little concern for the environmental consequences of treating the
landscape like a giant canvas
with a bulldozer for a brush.

Site Specific
Site-specific art
is artwork created to
exist in a certain place
. Typically, the artist takes the
location into account while planning and creating
the artwork.

Outdoor site-specific artworks often
include landscaping combined with permanently sited sculptural elements
(site-specific art can be linked with environmental art).

More broadly, the term is sometimes used for
any work that is (more or less) permanently attached to a particular location.

Temporary vs Permanent
Art can be either
temporary or permanent

lasting for only a limited period of time; not permanent

lasting or intended to last or remain unchanged indefinitely.

Environmental Art
The term "environmental art" is used in a variety of different contexts: it can be used to
refer to art describing the natural world
art that celebrates personal engagement with the natural world
("art in nature"), and to the
practices of ecological artists
, whose work directly addresses environmental issues.
Installation art
is an artistic genre of
three-dimensional works
that are often
designed to transform the perception of a space

Public art is significant within the art world, as it signifies a working practice of
site specificity, community involvement and collaboration.
Public art may include any art which is exhibited in a public space including publicly accessible buildings.
The relationship between the
content and audience, what the art is saying and to whom, is just as important
if not more important than its physical location.
Generally, the term
installation art is applied to interior spaces
, whereas
exterior interventions are often called public art or

land art
; however, the boundaries between these terms overlap.
