SCAPE Public Art installs public art in Christchurch. Our gifting programme of seven permanent artworks and commissioning of more than 150 temporary public artworks provides an unique point of difference for the city, enhancing the urban centre and raising the profile for public art in Christchurch.
Held in Christchurch’s central city public spaces and supported through a range of partnerships SCAPE Public Art is renowned for showcasing leading international contemporary artists as well as being a springboard for new local talent.
The vision for SCAPE Public Art is for Christchurch people to be excited, engaged and stimulated by the contemporary public art which is well regarded and known by the national and international art world.
For the SCAPE 7 Public Art Christchurch Biennial (September 27 - November 9 2013) we will create one major permanent artwork, a public art walkway with eleven new temporary artworks and five existing artworks, an education and community engagement programme and a series of public events.
