Ep. 8 Art in public space

Ep. 8 Art in public space

Sounds of Our City Episode #8

A huge, overbearing bronze spider (Louise Bourgie’s Maman), a round, reflective bean (Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate), a sculpture spelling L-O-V-E (Robert Indiana’s LOVE)… these are all famous artworks set in public space that have enlivened our interactions with the surroundings.

In this episode, we look to Mapletree Business City in Singapore as a local case study on the topic of art in public space. Joining us is Leon Tan, project manager of the public art education trail we will be exploring today.
