  • PANEL DISCUSSION: Contemporary Art in Public Places
    Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto ON. May 10th, 2012

    The corridors, avenues and arcades of the city make up the shared space of urban living. Without the walls of a gallery or a museum, public art takes on meaning from its environment: the city and the people who frequent its streets. Public art occupies intermediary ground between architecture, landscape architecture, sculpture, painting, digital media and performance. For this reason, public artwork becomes part of the infrastructure of the city and can have a powerful impact on the way we use public space. For this panel, the speakers will look at the interplay between the permanent and the ephemeral in public art, as both have a lasting impact on the urban sector. Together Jane Perdue, Shirley Madill and Lesia Mokrycke highlight the arts as an important factor in the way people experience urban space. This talk outlines initiatives such as the Percent for Public Art Program, ScotiaBank Nuit Blanche and several public art projects, providing insight into why these initiatives are essential to Canadian cities.


    Lesia Mokrycke lives and works in the Hamilton-Burlington-Toronto area. Lesia has worked on several large-scale, site-specific public projects in the United States and Canada. Her most recent projects include Woodland, a 50 x 50’ mural for McCallumSather Architects; a large site-specific mural project in Maryland titled Le Soleil au Travers les Arbres; a Philadelphia based installation titled Rain designed around the ephemeral experience of nature; and a triptych, Soliloquy, that explores the relationship between individuality and urban space. Lesia's studio is located on James Street North in Hamilton, in the heart of the city's up and coming arts district.
