Art in public space. Kinomural invites you to an online panel discussion

Kinomural is one of the few events in Europe that presents works by leading representatives of new media art. on 23 September, at Wrocław’s Przedmieście Odrzańskie (Oder Suburb), as many as seventy-five works by artists from all over the world will be displayed on six building walls. The day before, the organisers, together with invited guests, will address the issue of art in public space

When an artist enters the fabric of a city with his or her work, does the artist suddenly become an uninvited guest or a host who invites the public into a situation that is completely new to them? How do you make yourself comfortable and have a conversation with your audience?

There is a famous quote from footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović: “When Zlatan visits you, you become the guest”. We followed this perverse text to reflect on the place of art in the public space. It is worth listening to what artists and curators have to say about this special encounter between art and the audience: outside the gallery, on the street. During previous editions of Kinomural, we have hosted thousands of viewers, including those who had their first contact with contemporary video art or installation. The screenings are also attended by those most open-minded viewers – children. Every year we think about what and how to reach them

Zlatan makes you a guest in your own home and that can be quite an adventure. But also if the work challenges and doesn’t mediate with the audience, sometimes there is a misunderstanding, conflict or misinterpretation. How to project contact with the audience and how to respond will be discussed by our guests – New York-based film curator Becca Keating, audiovisual artist Guli Silberstein and Wrocław-based painter and muralist Zbiok – announces Adriana Prodeus, moderator of the panel and curator of Kinomural .

How do we invite, mediate, enter into dialogue and understand the needs of audiences as well as artists? What results from an encounter between a work of art and a ‘casual’ viewer? What is a ‘good moment’ for a given artistic action? Is the audience’s reaction deliberately designed? All this will be discussed by the invited guests on 22 September (Friday) stationary at Wrocław’s Pod Ciśnieniem venue and online – the broadcast will be available at:
