Abstract

Interviewee Jorge Otero-Pailos unpacks the bigger ideas behind activating historic spaces. He begins by interrogating the delineation between preservation and art and then goes on to examine the role of culture. Otero-Pailos emphasize that authentic connection with the audience is key and that preservation art—a term he proposes in this article—must address contemporary concerns and interests. He discusses both the national and international settings for this conversation and highlights the changing scale of preservation efforts, outlining the ways in which that change is driving changes in how students of preservation art must be taught to engage with the field.
