Anthony Garratt’s floating art installation on Llyn Llydaw, beneath Snowdon’s summit, attracted media attention and controversy earlier this year. In National Parks, planning controls exist to conserve the ‘natural beauty’ of these protected landscapes, but artworks such as this are not always subject to such regulation. A public debate that questions the relationship between art and landscape will be held at the Museum of Modern Art – MOMA – Machynlleth on Wednesday 19th October, from 12.00-13.30 pm (free entry).
The motion: ‘This house considers that public art and arts related installations should not be subjected to any further development controls’
