Nothing lasts forever, as life, songs and books all have a way of reminding us. Is that necessarily a bad thing, though? Whatever look you were rocking when you were 14 years old — it's a good thing that has been and gone. The same applies to every pop culture obsession you've ever had that hasn't stood the test of time.

What about art? To be specific, what about public art? No, we're not talking about the giant statues and sculptures that stand outside many a building — we're talking about pop-ups, short-term works, and projects that are much more dynamic, flexible and engaging. Discussing their role and value is Now You See It, Now You Don't's aim, as is getting the scoop from the creative folks responsible for crafting such pieces.

In the first in a planned series of talks, four case studies will help unpack the topic of limited-lifespan artistic endeavours. Join Jenna Green, Marisa Georgiou, Caitlin Franzmann and the bright minds behind arts initiative people+artist+place for an insight into a field that might be fleeting, but remains oh-so-memorable.
