Emerging artists are invited to express their interest in creating temporary works commissioned to mark the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand.
Auckland Council is looking for semi‐permanent installations with a lifespan of five years.
This enables works that will thematically respond to the anniversary.
Auckland Council has identified three likely sites as locations:
Tin Tacks Reserve Onehunga
Crawford Reserve Howick
Killarney Park Takapuna (TBC)
Auckland Council is looking for artists to produce a concept that:
is a stand-alone artwork
conceptually fits with the context of the site
contributes to transforming how Aucklanders experience the area
can be developed within the available budget and proposed timeline
has a lifespan of five years
is made of robust materials that are resistant to vandalism and weather
is less than four cubic metres in size
is designed to be fixed to a foundation two metres by two metres, and half a metre high
weighs less than four tonnes.
Auckland Council welcomes expressions of interest from both individuals and collectives.
