Gallery applications open now

Applications are now open for the 2022 Aotearoa Art Fair, to be held from Wednesday 2 – Sunday 6 March at The Cloud, Queens Wharf, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.

Aotearoa Art Fair is a showcase for contemporary art of the wider Pacific Rim region, including not only New Zealand and Australia, but parts of Southeast Asia, the west coasts of North and South America, and the Pacific Islands.

Presenting the breadth and diversity of some of the best art and artists working in our region, the Fair offers up to 40 galleries spaces on the main floor, plus five additional spaces on the mezzanine. The latter provides newer galleries and artist-run spaces the opportunity to participate in the Fair at a significantly discounted rate.

2022 will be the fifth live edition of the Fair under the ownership of North Port Events and the current directorship. Over this time, sales of art have grown from around NZ$4 million in 2016 to more than NZ$10 million in 2021. The Fair has a visitor capacity of around 10,000, and attracts private collectors and museum professionals from across New Zealand and Australia.  To view the full post-fair report from the 2021 Art Fair, please click here.
