Public Art Fund Unveils ‘Global Positioning’ A Three-City Exhibition of Artworks




Public Art Fund expands on its use of the JCDecaux bus shelters as canvas with an ambitious new three-city exhibition, Global Positioning ~ new artworks by 20 international artists that reveals our fundamental shared humanity across the boundaries of geography, culture, language, history, and politics. Coming together from 17 countries across six continents, these creative voices span disparate regions including the Amazon rainforest in Colombia; the desert lands of the Indulkana Community in Central Australia; Yangon, Myanmar, where the military has seized control through a coup; and the West African port city of Accra, Ghana. The exhibition debuts on January 26 on 320 JCDecaux bus shelters throughout New York City, Chicago, and Boston.

Public Art Fund will also be hosting an upcoming virtual panel talk with three of the artists in the exhibition, Myriam Boulos (Beirut, Lebanon), Nolan Oswald Dennis (Johannesburg, South Africa), and Denisse Ariana Pérez (Barcelona, Spain), on January 31st at 1:30pm ET on Zoom. In conversation with PAF’s Artistic & Executive Director Nicholas Baume, they’ll discuss the impact of public art throughout the pandemic, and how art can reveal our shared humanity across various boundaries.
