One Day Sculpture  

ONE DAY SCULPTURE is built on and self-consciously fosters professional partnerships and exchange. The generosity and enthusiasm of a broad network of national and international artists and curators is directly reflected in the series’ realisation. Originating in the relationship developed between the Litmus Research Initiative and Claire Doherty, ONE DAY SCULPTURE brings together twelve of New Zealand’s leading contemporary art institutions to collectively interrogate notions of public sculpture, commissioning and temporary, place-based sculptural practice. Were it not for the extraordinary commitment of all participating artists, institutions and curators – and the significant support of key national and international arts funding agencies – ONE DAY SCULPTURE could not be realised.


ONE DAY SCULPTURE has been made possible through the generous financial support
