Public art commissioning and contracting looks different from the perspectives of the artist, the lawyer and the commissioning body. Mardi Nowak, Head of Visual Arts at RACV,  artist and lecturer, Emily Floyd and lawyer Alana Kushnir, Director and Founder of GuestWork Agency will speak about the commissioning process—from inception to completion of an art work. Detailing each stage—including the brief, budgets, submitting an EOI, design development, stakeholder engagement and much more—this session will provide clear guidance on what to do and what not to do, and the advantages of getting the process right.

Anne Robertson
Anne Robertson was appointed Executive Officer of the Public Galleries Association of Victoria (PGAV) in November 2010. Since joining the PGAV, Anne has contributed to landmark research into the brand practices of Victoria’s public galleries, undertaken state-wide benchmarking, prepared a wide-range of submissions for state and federal government and established a national committee which is working towards national benchmarking of the public gallery sector.   Previously, Anne was Executive Director of Craftsouth: Centre for Contemporary Craft & Design, Adelaide, and has held positions with the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) and the Experimental Art Foundation.

Emily Floyd
In a practice that encompasses public art, sculpture and printmaking, interaction is a fundamental part of the process of engagement for Emily Floyd. Her work engages a wide range of disciplines and endeavours including: public art and social activism, design and typography, literature and cultural studies, community participation and public education, and various political ideologies. Drawing parallels between educational models and contemporary art, Floyd’s bold and colourful works generate spaces for social engagement and interaction whilst provoking discussions about contemporary social, cultural and political ideas.

Floyd’s large-scale public projects include: Public Art Strategy 2006 for Eastlink Motorway; New Ways of Thinking 2012 at Melbourne's Docklands precinct; the inaugural Monash University Museum of Art Ian Potter Sculpture Commission, This Place Will Always Be Open 2012; and Labour Garden, presented in the Giardino delle Vergini for the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015.

Mardi Nowak 
Mardi Nowak has recently commenced as Head of Visual Arts at the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV). She was previously Director of the National Exhibitions Touring Support (NETS Victoria) where she oversaw an exciting national tour program and was instrumental in supporting Victorian public galleries such as Shepparton Art Museum, Arts Project Australia and Horsham Art Gallery in sharing their ambitious exhibition programs across Victoria and Australia. Nowak holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (Hons) and a Master of Fine Arts (Research) from Monash University. She has worked as a curator and gallery manager in the public gallery and local government sector for nearly two decades while maintaining her own practice as a tapestry artist.
