Standard

When we think about the use of art in UK New towns it is worth considering……..

Whether ART was USED TO…………..

  • hide poor living conditions
  • act as a social experiment
  • respond to the local environment
  • respond naturally and organically to what was there before
  • offer a radical criticism (the most unlikely maybe)

  • original artists involved (particularly as part of development corporations in UK)
  • recent artists commenting on environment
  • graffiti artists – local commentary.
