Public Art Consultancy

Curating Public Art

As  public art consultants, Artelier develops art strategies for art installations in varied public realm spaces: including art for mixed use developments, art for corporate environments,  art for public parks, and residential developments. As well as providing art consultancy for outdoor art, we source and commission contemporary artists to create new art for outdoor areas. 



A Turnkey Public Art Process

Developing an Art Strategy

Artelier's art consultants review in detail the public art project specifications and the client's vision for the public artwork. Understanding deeply the specific context for the public artwork, we propose ideas for the art installation – such as public sculptures and light installations. 

Creatively developing an art strategy involves identifying key locations for public art, curating both art in urban contexts and natural landscapes.

Custom Art Commissions

Using art market insight, as art consultants we recommend suitable artists to create the public art. We develop the concept with the artist, finalising the proposal with the client. 


Artelier oversees the art commissioning  process, ensuring that the public art will meet the client's ambitions and integrate into its context.  

Logistics & Art Installation

High-value art in public spaces requires specialist knowledge to ensure the artwork is suitable for outdoor display. We ensure that public art meets safety standards and project requirements. 


We further collaborate with artists on technical aspects, such as developing fixing for public sculptures and protective art finishes. Artelier's art consultancy oversees the public art installation, liaising project teams on shipping and placement.
