Sculpture by the Sea Cottesloe, 2022

We are thrilled to be staging the 18th annual Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe exhibition from 4 – 21 March as a COVID Safe Event in consultation with the WA Government Health Department and the Town of Cottesloe.  This is the 50th Sculpture by the Sea exhibition held in Australia and Denmark with 70 sculptures by artists from across the world.

Due to the COVID pandemic wearing a mask is currently a mandatory requirement in all indoor settings in WA, and are recommended outdoors where physical distancing is not possible.   Due to the evolving nature of the COVID pandemic please check the WA Government Health website for the latest advice prior to attending the exhibition.

When you arrive at the exhibition, next to Marine Parade between the Cottesloe groyne and the grassed terraces north of the old Indiana’s, we encourage you to check-in at the COVID Stations (including paper-based registers) at numerous locations across the exhibition site.  When you visit our indoor ‘Sculpture Inside’ exhibition at the Sea View Golf Club on Jarrad Street, Cottesloe, please follow the COVID check in procedures and wear a mask.

We hope that as many people as possible can enjoy Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe, and for those who are unable to view the sculptures on the sand and park areas overlooking the Indian ocean in person, we are about to launch the Sculpture by the Sea App that will offer virtual tours and an audio tour of the sculptures .

We look forward to welcoming visitors – local and international – to all our exhibitions, with our staff, artists and crew all being fully vaccinated to help us keep you safe.

Please follow our social media channels to experience our exhibitions – wherever you might be.

This year we are planning three major Sculpture exhibitions and projects – all being staged in line with the relevant State Government regulations:

  • Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe will run from 4 – 21 March;
  • Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi from 20 October – 6 November; and
  • The Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail a major new permanent public sculpture collection to open in May in the towns of Adelong, Batlow, Tumbarumba, the hamlet of Tooma and the Tumbarumba vineyards of Courabyra, Johansen and Obsession.

All of these exhibitions provide accessible, inclusive and thought provoking artworks in beautiful public places, with each being carefully planned in line with the current local government health and safety regulations currently in place.
