Perpetual Guardian Sculpture on the Gulf 2024

Nau Mai, Haere Mai

Our much-loved biennial exhibition is back!

The Matiatia Coastal Walkway will once again be transformed into an extraordinary outdoor gallery for Sculpture on the Gulf 2024. Only 35 minutes ferry ride from Tāmaki Makaurau, Perpetual Guardian Sculpture on the Gulf takes us into the hearts and minds of some of our most  exciting contemporary artists.

Gather your people and get ready to walk, play, connect, reflect. Enjoy!

‘Savour the zest of the moment when sculpture jumps into nature’s lap.’ (The New Yorker)

Our Matiatia headland is tūrangawaewae – a place for all artists to stand tall.
