Don't Misbehave! SCAPE 2006 Public Art Biennial

This article looks at the argument for public art in Christchurch subsequent to the phenomenal public debate sparked when Michael Parekowhai's 5m high fibreglass bunnies became the centrepiece of the SCAPE 2002 Biennial. Velde further examines some of the recent aims for SCAPE 2006 by curators Natasha Conland and Susanne Jaschko who are looking to embrace contemporary art's exploration of different media channels.
