Aaron Seeto on “New Century Garden” and Public Art in Chinatown

Aaron Seeto, Director of 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, talks about his curatorial vision for a multidisciplinary, experimental public garden work for Sydney’s Chinatown.

New Century Garden: Talking About Public Art in Chinatown, produced by 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art in partnership with City of Sydney, examines the role of public space in Chinatown, using the specific idea of a garden as an initial proposal for a public art project.

The principle aim of the forum is to begin a public discussion on ideas, processes and concerns regarding new approaches to public art, particularly in regards to multidisciplinary ways of working that may allow for artists, designers, architects, planners and communities to come together in innovative and mutually rewarding contexts.
