Trespass: Uncommissioned Public Art

Updates from and letters to the editor

` Essay, Anne Pasternak

A thrilling essay contribution in Trespass comes from Anne Pasternak, President and Art Director of CREATIVE TIME. Overseeing public arts programs in New York City, no one could be in a better position to write about what the “uncommissioned” aspect adds to Public Art.
Trespass artists “activate our urban spaces as places for democracy, keep our cities alive with creativity and powerful ideas, and engage new audiences”. Of legendary artworks she cites: “There was no single institution behind them, no big foundation, and no instant gratification — just personal determination and a ton of hard work.”
