AUCKLAND ART FAIR IS NOW OPEN

New Zealand's premier international showcase for contemporary art, Auckland Art Fair, returns this year after a three-year hiatus, from 25 to 29 May at The Cloud on Auckland's Queens Wharf. The 2016 edition brings together 40 galleries from New Zealand, Australia, the Pacific, and South America.

Exhibitors have been selected based on the merit of their proposals by an independent selection committee comprising Michael Lett, Director of Michael Lett Gallery (Auckland); Dayle Mace, longstanding supporter and patron of the arts in New Zealand; Justin Paton, Head Curator of International Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (Sydney); Simon Rees, Director of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery / Len Lye Centre (New Plymouth); and Hamish Keith, cultural commentator.

AUCKLAND ART FAIR 2016 STAND PRIZE

Congratulations to Michael Lett, winner of the inaugural My Art Stand Prize at Auckland Art Fair 2016. The Auckland-based gallery features a solo presentation of Eve Armstrong’s Trading Table in booth B6.

An invited jury consisting of Gregory Burke (former Director of Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and now CEO & Executive Director of Remai Modern, Canada) and Christina Barton (Director of Adam Art Gallery in Te Pataka Toi, Wellington) awarded the prize on the basis of quality of presentation, curatorial sensibility and contribution to arts development and discourse in the Pacific region.

Michael Lett will receive $5,000 for their exceptional presentation. We are very grateful to My Art for their generous support of this new initiative.
