David McCracken to Exhibit in SCAPE Public Art Season 2016
The 2016 SCAPE Public Art Season has been announced with gallery artist David McCracken included in this year's line-up. This year some works will be exhibited in the new location in the Christ's College Quadrangle, Christchurch (accessible from Rolleston Ave) as part of the curated exhibition element Presence. Presence is a selection of engaging and diverse works that will be the final stop in the SCAPE Public Art Walkways, where free daily guided tours will start from the Arts Centre taking visitors on a tour of the public works.
McCracken's Portrait of Mass Ascending reflects his ongoing practice in transforming pedestrian, everyday materials into engaging sculptural forms. Along with this work, many of his recent 'bomb' forms from his recent exhibition, Plain View, will also pop up around Christchurch City.
The SCAPE season will run for a six-week period beginning on 1 October until 12 November 2016, which includes the school holidays and the ever popular New Zealand Cup & Show Week.
