Water Walls

Art Strategy + Program Delivery

 

Water Walls is a collection of nine contemporary urban artworks on public infrastructure buildings including sewer pump station buildings, water reservoirs and recycled water tanks. Creative Road developed the curatorial framework, proposed appropriate artists and managed artist briefing, selection and project management through to completion.

Artists included Kiel Tillman, Luke Day, Danni Simpson, Sarah Beetson and Go Suga, Leans, Frank and Mimi, Sophia Mary Mac and Andrew Dennis. The project was installed over three weeks and documented by filmmaker Jack Birtles.

“The artist brief required integrated artwork concepts specific to the building they were painting.  Integration was also about responding to the themes and stories that are important to the region and the existing meaningful characteristics of a place. Artists were asked to consider the stories that could be told, the curatorial framework and the surrounding natural environment.” Rebecca Townsend, Creative Road
