Art for the public? Art of the public? Art by the public? Single words that signify a world of historical and critical issues facing the public artist today. Over the last 20 years, art workers have hotly debated how one broaches the concepts of the "public", of the "responsibility" of the artist, and of the "purpose" and "meaning" of art--especially when art is moved out of the museum/gallery and into the spaces of daily life. "The Citizen Artist", a compendium of articles from the magazine High Performance, brings forth the voices of the artists that formed the backbone of these debates. From the Conceptual Art experiments of the '70s to the community-based art of the '90s, from political theories to humanist concerns of the public, the historical elements that have been integral to the development of public art make this one of the most engaging topics relating to art production today.
