The liveable city: Place-making and public art


event Details

How does art transform our experience of living in an intensely urban setting?

Public Art Project Manager Kim Martinengo gives an insightful talk on placemaking and pop-up art in Tāmaki Makaurau, followed by a guided tour, led by Lucy Moore, of open-air artworks in the area surrounding our Gallery.

From light installations to memorial sculptures, discover our city through the public artworks that colour our everyday lives and dive into the processes and planning of the team who care for them.

This event will start in the Members lounge followed by a moderate amount of walking and standing. This event will be contact traced via Eventfinda.
