Auckland Art Fair 2016 saw the introduction of the ‘Projects’, an exhibition of around a dozen selected works installed in and around the Fair, in addition to the gallery stands. The Projects showcase the exceptional quality and diversity of art made in Aotearoa and the Pacific, and add another dimension to the Fair by including work with a less commercial, more conceptual focus. Pieces by acclaimed local and international artists are presented alongside works by emerging artists who do not yet have dealer gallery representation, but who show promise.
The curators for the sophomore iteration of the Projects at Auckland Art Fair 2018 are Gabriela Salgado (Artistic Director, Te Tuhi) and Francis McWhannell (independent). Rather than set a curatorial agenda, Salgado and McWhannell put out an open call.
The list of artists participating in the Projects section will be announced soon.
