Case Studies

Public Art is born from, and inextricably linked to, its context. IPA therefore feels to categorise each unique case study would be inappropriate and reductive.

Hence the filters provided in this archive have been chosen for their objectivity. Case studies can be searched by:

the region of their origin,

the year of their completion,

the year they were nominated for IAPA

and whether it was permanent of temporary.

IPA hopes this will encourage you to research case studies and reach your own conclusions.

Please be aware that the artists acknowledged for each case study have worked as part of a team.
