Calling for Expressions of Interest for 2023 exhibition

NZ Sculpture OnShore is now calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to exhibit outdoor sculpture(s) in the 2023 exhibition.

Sculpture OnShore, New Zealand's largest outdoor sculpture exhibition is held every two years, in November at the spectacular O Peretu, Fort Takapuna Historic Reserve on Auckland’s North Shore.

The exhibition, which will feature work from established and emerging artists, provides a unique snapshot of contemporary three-dimensional art practice in New Zealand.

All the works exhibited at NZ Sculpture OnShore are for sale during the exhibition and net proceeds from each exhibition are donated to Women's Refuge New Zealand. To date NZ$ 2.2 million has been donated to help Women's Refuge support the victims of domestic violence in New Zealand.

Expressions of interest are sought from NZ and International artists for the next biennial exhibition in November 2023.

Curator Sally Lush is looking for a range of new works or those not exhibited previously in Auckland that will suit the large, exposed cliff top site.

The artworks selected will range in scale from monumental stand-alone sculptures to domestic and small-scaled works, ephemeral projects, light and sound art works, interactive and participatory works, process art and site-specific installations utilising some of the historic built structures will also be included.
