SCAPE Public Art in Christchurch will be celebrating their 20th anniversary and the presentation of works for the 2018 Season is going to be bigger and better than ever. A 5.5m tall sculpture by Tony Cragg has been announced as the first work, marking the first time a work of this scale by Cragg will be presented publically in New Zealand. The bronze sculpture will be installed at the Christ's College Quadrangle in the city centre for the duration of the SCAPE season (6 October - 17 November) and will remain there over Summer until January 2019.
Gow Langsford Gallery along with the SCAPE Public Art Trust and the Philipp Family Foundation has facilitated getting this magnificent work to Christchurch. Director Gary Langsford comments: “It is wonderful to have the opportunity to work with SCAPE in its 20th year. They’ve been pioneering and ambitious in bringing world-class public art to Christchurch [...] Our organisations have enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial relationship, and the 20th anniversary of SCAPE provided the perfect opportunity to bring a monumental work by Tony Cragg to New Zealand".
The Season will officially open on Saturday 6 October. Further artists are set to be announced over the coming months.
