An Invitation to artists and designers wanting to submit work/s for the next Harbourview Sculprure Trail

The Harbourview Sculpture Trail is seeking sculptural works that reflect contemporary New Zealand art practice in a range of sizes, mediums and price ranges. Varied practices are appreciated, including static, kinetic, utilising light, sound or water, installation, ephemeral, conceptual or participatory in nature. We are seeking sculptures that relate to this unique area and tell of the history and ecology, and that address the social and political issues of Te Atatu and the wider Auckland area. Preference will be given to new pieces that have not been exhibited before and to site-specific work.

The Harbourview Sculpture Trail is a journey of discovery, showcasing a wide range of sculpture and outdoor art in a unique setting. Reflecting on the rich local history and natural environment of the salt marshes surrounding Te Atatu Peninsula, the exhibition is set against stunning views down the Waitemata to the Harbour Bridge and beyond.

Following its successful debut in March 2012, the Harbourview Sculpture Trail (HST) is becoming an exciting biennial event on the Auckland arts calendar, positioned to alternate with the well-established biennials headland Sculpture on the Gulf (Waiheke) and NZ Sculpture on Shore (North Shore). This is West Auckland's very own sculpture event, with exhibited works available for purchase and proceeds being donated to Hospice West Auckland.
