Auckland Art Fair 2009

Auckland Art Fair 09, New Zealand’s premier visual arts event, returns to Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour from May 1-3 with a select contingent of New Zealand and Australia’s leading galleries. The third and largest event to date offers a snapshot of what’s current in contemporary Trans-Tasman art practice. Artists and their representing galleries will present fresh, current work, in the form of 40 solo and curated exhibitions, a sculpture court and a commissioned installation, to an estimated 12,000 visitors. All works are for sale. The event provides an opportunity for artists and audiences from both sides of the Tasman to engage in conversation, side by side. To enhance the dialogue, our catalogue, published by Random House NZ as New Art Now, contains a series of commissioned essays by leading writers and curators. Our keynote lecture by Don Thompson, author of ‘The $12M Stuffed Shark’ will offer a global perspective on the curious economics of contemporary art. A full public programme, including twice daily public lectures and panel discussions by a host of local and international art commentators, guided tours and artist talks, ensures that Auckland Art Fair will be a site for exploration, discovery and discussion. Haere mai. Welcome.
