VIP Preview tickets are a great opportunity for those looking to expand their collections. The VIP Preview gives you first access to the gallery booths, to see and buy work by more than 150 artists, before the works sell out.

With 35+ galleries from across New Zealand and Australia, there is plenty to see, and a Premier Art Pass is your ticket to see it all first.

Whether you’re interested in painting, photography, moving image or sculpture – Aotearoa Art Fair, Aotearoa’s premier contemporary art event, has something for everyone.

Stay on for the Opening Night Party

With a Premier Art Pass, stay on into the evening for Opening Night on Thursday 2 March from 5–9pm to celebrate with artists, collectors, curators and gallery directors, while enjoying Perrier-Jouët Champagne, cocktails from one of the pop-up bars, wine from Seresin Estate, food from esteemed local eateries, and more.

Return each day for Artist Talks & More

Each day at Aotearoa Art Fair is unique, and with a Premier Art Pass you can experience it all. Hear your favourite artist speak about their work, discover new work, meet artists and chat with gallerists or simply relax in the outdoor Sculpture Space looking over Auckland’s Waitematā Harbour with a cocktail or a glass of bubbles.

Plan your visit with the What’s On programme.
