AOTEAROA ART FAIR

18 – 21 April 2024
Viaduct Events Centre
Auckland, New Zealand

Aotearoa Art Fair, New Zealand’s premier event for contemporary art, returns to Auckland from 18 – 21 April 2024. One of the most significant art events in New Zealand’s cultural calendar, the Fair welcomes thousands of local and international visitors each year.

The Fair spotlights the breadth and diversity of contemporary art in our region, bringing together leading galleries from New Zealand and Australia to showcase a range of works by emerging and established artists.

2024 marks an exciting new chapter for the Fair, now under the ownership of the organisers of international art fairs: Sydney Contemporary, Art SG, Taipei Dangdai, and Tokyo Gendai. Leveraging their international expertise and vast network of connections, this promises an exciting future and will take the event to new heights.

Whether you’re a seasoned collector, occasional buyer, or just curious about art, this is your opportunity to browse and buy from hundreds of works. From painting to sculpture, print to ceramics, there’s something for everyone at the Aotearoa Art Fair.
