Aotearoa Art Fair, New Zealand’s premier event for contemporary art, returns to Auckland from 1 – 4 May 2025. One of the most significant art events in New Zealand’s cultural calendar, the Fair welcomes thousands of local and international visitors each year.

Congratulations to Noel McKenna, who has won the Darling Portrait Prize with The National Portrait Gallery, Canberra, for his work ‘William Nuttall with horses in field, 2023’, capturing his agent in a joyful, energetic style.

The judges, who had a whopping 1000 entries and 24 finalists to choose from, said of McKenna’s work that “this is an energetic and unexpected portrait. The subject shares the work with animals and the landscape. It is joyous in its execution and demonstrates the skill of an established Australian artist whose practice is assured in every way”. 

The work is on display until October 13.
