Abstract:

"Works of art make a substantial contribution to cultural identity. This impact is considerably enhanced when a work of art is created for a public place and takes on a space-defining function. Whatever the shape, size or medium, art in public, accessible to all, attracts attention. Its presence provokes thought, questions assumptions, expresses values and adds new qualities to communities and cities. [Here], selected works introduce the history of public art over 4 500 years of historical eras and styles, including world-famous landmarks such as the Great Sphinx of Giza [in Egypt], the Trevi Fountain [in Rome, Italy] or the Statue of Liberty. The majority of art works presented here are from modern times, allowing an in-depth look at contemporary works by ... artists like Alexander Calder, Nam June Paik, Jeff Koons, Eduardo Chillida or Ai Weiwei."--Back cover.
