Art enthusiasts will be in their element at the upcoming Auckland Art Fair, due to take place at The Cloud on Queen’s Wharf
Local and Australian artists will exhibit alongside names from Latin America and the Pacific Islands at the upcoming Auckland Art Fair, heralding a shift in focus to contemporary art of the wider Pacific region.
Earlybird tickets are now on sale for the May 25-29 event, which will offer the first glimpse at exciting new works exhibited by the 40 participating galleries.
Peter Gordon of Auckland’s Sugar Club as well as The Providores and Tapa Room in London will curate all culinary offerings onsite, including a signature fusion restaurant on the mezzanine level of The Cloud, overlooking the Waitemata harbour.
Nine Auckland-based not-for-profit galleries will present editions at the Fair – a limited run of works of art by leading artists, in a shared booth. Proceeds from the sales will go directly to support the institutions involved such as McCahon House and Objectspace. Editions are an affordable way for art lovers and first time collectors to access and own work by highly regarded artists.
The Fair will open to the public with an opening night event on Wednesday 25 May. The evening of Friday 27 will see a special new event, the Auckland Art Fair Artists’ Party, which offers a chance to mingle with artists and gallery directors in a fun, informal atmosphere at the Fair.
Door sales are $30 and 4-day passes are $75. Tickets for the exclusive Opening Night on 25th May are $95 and $45 for the Artists Party on 27th May.
