Abstract or Description

This is a book that considers the public art works of Cristina Iglesias through three iterations: 'Forgotten Streams' (London, 2017), 'Tres Aquas' (Toledo, 2014) and Estancias Sumergidas (Baja California 2015). The book consists of a series of essays by leading writers, curators and theorists about various dimensions of Iglesias' public art works. These include architecture and the city, public art and civic space and art in the wild (a sculpture submerged under the sea). Each of these topics was the subject of a symposium, which involved written papers and recorded discussion, both of which will appear in the book. This is a comprehensive critical analysis of the public art of one of the most important sculptors working in Europe today, but it takes the work as a platform to consider a range of subjects from the meaning of pubic space to the history of toleration to the relation between art and ecological renewal.
