Cargo Bike Art Space

Curated by Anna Muirhead

For Dunedin Fringe 2021, Five artists utilised the cargo space of the bike to create projects that could be easily relocated to different venues, parks and cycleways. Some of the works are exhibited in this mini retrospective show.

Cargo Bike Art Space offers diverse perspectives on public space, inclusivity, politics, and the environment.

Whats in a name (annas)

'What's in a name? An unfinished map of Māori place names in Ōtepoti' is an attempt by the artist to find and acknowledge original place names of Dunedin in Te Reo. The unfinished map was made for Cargo Bike Art Space, in Dunedin Fringe 2021 and involved the audience participating in a bike ride around the peninsula, stopping at certain places while the artist wrote Māori place names on the concrete and shared what knowledge she had learnt throughout the research process.
