Public Art is inextricably linked to its context. The cases are mostly presented as they were submitted by the researcher. IPA feels that editing the cases to conform with 'standard English' is unnecessary, possibly counter-productive. While each case study is written from the unique cultural perspective of the author, the web filters provided have been chosen for their 'neutrality': IPA celebrates cultural diversity and feels to categorise each unique case study would be inappropriate and reductive.
- the region of its origin,
- whether it was permanent of temporary (we recognise that an ephemeral artwork may remain forever in the viewer's memory)
- the year it was researched for IAPA.
Please be aware that the artists acknowledged for each case study have worked as part of a team.
