Neville is currently regenerating a series of underpasses in the Scottish New Town of Cumbernauld. Taking leave from Cumbernauld’s first town artist Brian Miller, Neville is working with locals schools and residence of Cumbernauld to reinstate a series of public art works which originally decorated and enhanced the underpasses in the 1960s.
Throughout the evening Neville will question what part his personal artistic vision plays in this project and previous works and how the public view his practice overall. Is there room for the individual artists vision in community arts projects? How much ownership should the artist have in such projects?
Further information on both the history and current developments of the Cumbernauld underpass project will be posted at:
