About In Context 3

italoquotation

In Context 3 builds on the principles underpinning and learnings gained from the previous two phases of commissioning public art under the In Context programme, and is informed by the Department of Arts, Sport and Tourismís General National Guidelines for delivery of Per Cent for Art Schemes, published in 2004 (ref: http://www.publicart.ie/).

It strives for high levels of community engagement, awareness of different audiences, diversity and excellence in all artistic disciplines and art forms, site or non-site specific and permanent or temporary work, and sensitivity to context. Inherent to In Context 3 is a marked openness with regard to artistic outcomes; and essential to this openness is the programmeís emphasis on TIME enabling artists to explore ideas and realise projects within a supportive environment.

In early 2006 a comprehensive briefing document was developed and applications were invited from artists.   The programme was comprised of three commissioning strands: Residencies, Roads, Mediation and Evaluation. For more info on the Commissions visit the Artists, Mediation and Evaluation pages
