Oliver Bennett

Oliver Bennett is a freelance writer and editor based in London and East Anglia.

His pursuit in public art is informed by an interest in placemaking, the creation of the civic realm, the drive towards defining shared values, and how the various demands of public art shape its appearance. He is also interested in the wider sphere of megavisual public imagery; including tourist spectacle, ritual and sightseeing, and the aesthetics of advertising.

Oliver Bennett is author of Home Grown: Art and the Cultivation of a Neighbourhood, published in 2009 by Commissions East, and writes copy for newspapers and magazines on property, travel and the arts, as well as lecturing in journalism at University of Falmouth and running his own magazine, The Clerkenwell Other.

  1. Are you going to write a comment on Oslo Pilots event this week? I just read your interesting article on curating, dating two years back. (I am one of the artists you met in Oslo, maybe the first one.)
