Call for proposals: The Collin Post 4 Plinths Project

Sculpture Award 2024

The Wellington Sculpture Trust is pleased to announce applications are now open for the 2024 Collin Post 4 Plinths Project. The successful artist will receive $50,000 to realise new works sited on the concrete forecourt ‘plinths’ outside Te Papa Tongarewa, Museum of New Zealand, Wellington. This call for proposals facilitates selection of the ninth commission and will be in place for two years from February 2024.

The Collin Post 4 Plinths Project provides a prestigious opportunity for established and emerging artists through the reputation of the project, the quality of the artworks installed in previous rounds and the prominence of the site, one of the most visited in New Zealand.

Ben Pearce’s #PaperPalsAotearoa (2022-2024) is currently on show. Previous recipients of the award are: Yolunda Hickman's work Signal Forest (2020–2022), Ruth Watson (2018–2020); Kereama Taepa (2016–2018), Glen Hayward (2014–2016), Joanna Langford (2012–2014); Peter Trevelyan (2010–2012); and Regan Gentry (2008–2010). 

Descriptions and photographs of these can be seen on the Trust’s website. The opportunity is open to New Zealand and international artists and the artist retains ownership of the work at the completion of the project.
