Art is a gift: SCAPE
Check out the 2023 season of SCAPE Public Art before it closes on 14 February 2024.
This season, SCAPE presents debut public artworks by exciting artists from Aotearoa, responding to the curatorial theme The Gift.
“They [the artists] have carefully considered how gifting can be threaded through their work, not necessarily in the face-value way a gift is commonly understood, but in the cosmovisions to which each artist belongs,” says managing curator Tyson Campbell. Six larger-than-life artworks feature within a 4km walking trail. Additionally, there are five artworks (three sculptures and two murals) by local school children at Te Matatiki Toi Ora The Arts Centre.
“I feel honoured to be a part of this SCAPE season, alongside artists who I admire and respect immensely,” says participating artist Priscilla Rose Howe.
