Crafting public art strategies with artists, local authorities, and stakeholders

Introduction

A comprehensive consultancy service that works closely with artists, local authorities, and stakeholders to craft public art strategies and budgets that establish a clear vision and direction for sourcing and commissioning both permanent and non-permanent artworks and installations within cities, public spaces, or developments. Our communications team highlights the project's life cycle, facilitates PR initiatives, coordinates events, and provides support in developing social and digital strategies.

Artistic Visioning & Master Planning

Our international curators collaborate with creatives, officials, developers, stakeholders, and communities to find art prospects in developments, cities, and public spaces. Considering the project's vision, location, and partner requirements, our curatorial team creates Master Plans that highlight meaningful artwork opportunities, enhance the sense of place, and ensure the longevity of public spaces.

Public Art Strategy

In partnership with our collaborators, our curators craft Public Art Strategies that establish a clear vision and direction for sourcing and commissioning artworks within cities, public spaces, or developments. These strategies prioritise the integration of art to enrich the cultural landscape and create a cohesive artistic narrative that resonates with the local community and enhances the overall aesthetic experience.

Artist Procurement

Our team will handle the development and management of Expression of Interest initiatives, curate a short-list of appropriate artists, and choose and provide creative guidance to an artist who closely matches the project's curatorial vision and artwork opportunities within the space.

Temporary Projects Strategy

Our team will collaborate with our partners to investigate possibilities for non-permanent artworks, events, or programs that activate a designated space or location temporarily. These temporary initiatives offer fresh experiences, involve the community, and promote returning visits.

Curation

Our team offers a comprehensive art curation service for public art, meticulously selecting, organising, and presenting artworks in public spaces. We collaborate closely with artists, local authorities, and stakeholders to curate a diverse range of artworks that engage and inspire the public. Through our meticulous curation, we aim to contribute to the vibrant and meaningful transformation of cities and neighborhoods.

Marketing & PR

Our marketing team functions as an extension of our partners and collaborators. We capture photographs and videos at every stage of the project's life cycle, facilitate media and PR initiatives, coordinate events and talks, create creative assets, and provide support in developing social and digital strategies.

Featured Projects

The Warrior and the Bear
The Warrior and the Bear

Considered Damien Hirst’s most complex project to date, the 189 works of Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable took almost 10 years to create. The coral-encrusted The Warrior and the Bear sculpture is one of several large-scale artworks created for the exhibition, measuring over 7 metres tall and made entirely out of bronze. The design and intricate detailing of the artworks required a team of specialist fabricators across the world. A 90 minute documentary-style film was released to chronicle the narrative of the exhibition.

Ardath

The spectacular, large-scale glass artwork Ardath features a 42-square-metre wall of mouth-blown glass and is the centerpiece of Brian Clarke's exhibition A Great Light. This installation, an expansive field of flowering meadow motifs in etched glass, bathes the gallery in light and colour. The exhibition presents the artist’s unmatched contribution to the continuous development of the stained glass medium.

Gone But Not Forgotten

The striking installation of Gone But Not Forgotten features a ten-thousand-year-old woolly mammoth skeleton, gilded in 24-carat gold leaf and encased in a gold-framed tank. The work raised $11 million for charity and remains one of Damien Hirst's most popular works on Instagram due to its public installation at the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach.

The Severed Head of Medusa

Exceptional in scale and scope, the Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable exhibition challenged the boundaries of the materials, production techniques, and installation methods used. Visitors of the Palazzo Grassi in Venice were greeted by the 60-foot Demon with Bowl sculpture, which was re-cast in resin just for this installation. The Severed Head of Medusa is one of the smaller artworks that highlight the wide variety of materials used such as gold, lapis lazuli, agate, black and blue granite, malachite, jade, crystal, platinum, and several types of marble.

Held in 2021 in St Moritz, Mental Escapology was Damien Hirst’s first public exhibition in Switzerland. It featured over 40 works presented across multiple outdoor and indoor sites. Highlights included two large artworks from the Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable series, including a 12-foot bronze sculpture The Monk positioned in the center of the frozen Lake St Moritz, and the 21-foot bronze artwork Temple towering over the lake’s north bank.

The Lost Path
The Lost Path

In The Lost Path, Shono reminds us that the journey is greater than the destination with a monumental sculptural path made of 65,000 PVC pipes responding to a remote location in Al-Ula in Saudi Arabia. Only partially visible from the main site, Shono lays out a call to adventure and points us towards our personal buried stories. Using plastic pipes, a byproduct of the petroleum industry and a material the artist has been exploring in recent works, Shono repurposes this easily discarded material to draw the single line that forms the basis of this work. He uses the pipes in the desert as one would ink on paper, effectively drawing on site – a sculptural sketch in the desert.

Random International explores the human condition in an increasingly mechanised world through different notions of consciousness, perception, and instinct. In this work, a sphere is contained within a gridded structure. As people drive by, the nature of the object gradually appears to change, depending on the position and speed of the moving onlooker, as well as the surrounding meteorological conditions and time of day. From the most dramatic perspectives, the entire sculpture can appear to fade seamlessly from a solid geometrical body into nothing but sky.
