We are on the hunt for talented West Australian artists or design teams, to create a series of integrated artworks that will be featured in the new entertainment and dining precinct.
A vibrant meeting place for the community, the entertainment and dining precinct will
incorporate exceptional indoor and outdoor dining experiences, open space for relaxing and
a number of entertainment options, including a state-of-the-art 10 screen HOYTS cinema.
The artwork will be a multi-scaled, 2D and 3D discovery trail that integrates with the
architecture and landscaping within the precinct. It will be featured as part of a series of ‘moments’ providing a narrative that weaves through the precinct, inviting interaction and discovery.
“Artists or design teams are encouraged to create a focal point from which a series of
smaller works will flow on. This may be tightly knit or spread throughout the wider precinct to
create connectivity between different areas.
“The works will encourage visitors to explore, seeking and finding new artworks within the
series each time they visit Karrinyup,” said Abigail Pugh, AMP Capital’s National Creative
AMP Capital’s Divisional Development Manager – WA, Scott Nugent, said the wider art
strategy for Karrinyup Shopping Centre will see a selection of medium- to large-scale public
artworks integrated throughout the new centre.
“Incorporating meaningful public artworks is a highly important component of the major
development of Karrinyup Shopping Centre. We want to engage our customers with
interesting and distinctive experiences when visiting the centre.
“Whilst our retail experience will be unrivalled in WA, we also want Karrinyup to be a place
where people can come and simply enjoy the atmosphere – whether it’s having a meal with
friends or relaxing and exploring the unique artwork,” said Mr. Nugent.
Artworks incorporated in the new centre will respond to the architecture, as well as the wider
location near the coast and the surrounding parklands. This is further explored in the
curatorial themes ‘Contours’ and ‘Awakening’ that shortlisted artists will be invited to respond
to in their proposals as part of the next stage of the process.
A number of artists have been commissioned for other artwork opportunities within the new
centre, including a major sculptural piece that will be suspended across two levels of a central atrium space.
The $800 million development of Karrinyup Shopping Centre is set for completion by the end
Expressions of Interest for the entertainment and dining precinct artwork opportunity will
close on the 28th of September 2020. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
