About the Season
Countdown on to SCAPE Season 2019: 5 October – 16 November
SCAPE Public Art is officially on the countdown to its Season 2019 that takes the iconic game Rock : Paper : Scissors as its starting point.
Playful strategy or a battle of wills, Season 2019 features more than a dozen inspiring artworks from local and internationally renowned artists. Curated by Emma Bugden, they will bring a sense of solidity and location during the six-week Season that runs from 5 October – 16 November.
Linked via the SCAPE Public Art Walkway, the artworks will make us think and feel: about what home means, the emotional resonance of materials, and the patterns and rituals that help us make sense of the world.
The Season’s public programme will ignite an assortment of free, interactive activities in the city.
The build-up has already begun, with the announcement of the winners of SCAPE’s Re:ACTIVATE Aspiring Artists competition – a cornerstone of the public programme. In SCAPE’s Learning Zone at Tūranga, there will also be plenty of opportunity for children and school groups to learn and discover more about art through education activities linked to our artworks.
