The Institute for Public Art is pleased to announce that the Second International Award for Public Art (IAPA), exhibition and conference will be co-hosted in Auckland by the Elam School of Fine Arts at the National Institute of Creative Arts & Industries (NICAI), University of Auckland, New Zealand in a joint-venture hosting arrangement with Shandong University of Art & Design, Shandong Province, People’s Republic of China (SUAD).
The IAPA aims to research and celebrate the contribution of exceptional artists and place-making practices across the world, seeking to promote and advance culturally diverse and socially responsive public art.
The awards represent the culmination of a global search for the most recent and outstanding public art projects to have been undertaken by artists and creative groups. Supported by a team of researchers from around the globe, an international jury of leading contemporary public art experts has reviewed over 120 recent projects. A selected group of 32 projects from across the globe will feature in an exhibition in Auckland.
The creators of the top seven finalist projects, each from a
different part of the world, will be brought to Auckland to present
their work and engage in dialogue as part of the conference
Cities in a Climate of Change.
Submissions for academic proposals for the Cities in a Climate Change conference are invited via our submissions page prior to Monday 6 April, 11.59pm (NZ Time).
