Our much-loved biennial exhibition is back, and we need your support to present the work artists from Aotearoa and the world.
Waiheke Island, Auckland
Our much-loved biennial exhibition is back, and we need your support to present the work of 21 emerging and established artists from Aotearoa and the world.
It has been a difficult few years for the arts sector with many artists facing financial challenges due to dwindling sponsorship and ongoing impacts from the pandemic.
The artworks for Perpetual Guardian Sculpture on the Gulf 2024 have been created through sheer determination and a commitment to finding innovative and resourceful ways to realise the vision.
Your contribution will help the artists with costs incurred so far and those yet to come. This is your chance to make a real difference for artists – we need your collective generosity to get us there!
The Matiatia Coastal Walkway, Waiheke will once again be transformed into an Artscape like no other for Perpetual Guardian Sculpture on the Gulf 2024. From 24 February – 24 March a world-renowned art & nature experience awaits. Walk, talk, connect, and reflect as you encounter site-responsive sculpture up close and personal against a backdrop of magnificent vistas over the Hauraki Gulf on Waiheke Island.
Our artists for the 2024 exhibition are:
Chris Booth, Steve Carr, Eddie Clemens, Laura Duffy, Nicholas Galanin, Brett Graham, Natalie Guy, Turumeke Harrington, Chevron Hassett, Lonnie Hutchinson, Simon Ingram, Ana Iti, Zac Langdon Pole, Yona Lee, Isabella Loudon, Dane Mitchell, Denis O'Connor, Seung Yul Oh, Marie Shannon, and Oliver Stretton-Pow.
Anything you can give goes directly towards helping the artists with costs incurred so far and those yet to come, ensuring they can continue to create and share their artwork with our community and bring us all so much pleasure.
