SEASON
2022

SCAPE Public Art is taking over the central city with a series of exciting sculptures!

The SCAPE Public Art Season 2022 runs from 5 November 2022 to 29 January 2023 and is a highlight of Ōtautahi Christchurch’s cultural calendar, bringing works from eight local and international artists to the city. Each artist’s work will showcase their unique interpretation of this year’s theme, Sweat Equity, a compelling conclusion to Managing Curator Jamie Hanton’s overall vision of Fictions, which has tied together SCAPE Public Art’s seasons from 2020-2022.
