I’m using this Auckland Art Fair newsletter to spread the word about another great art event that opens in 3 weeks time.
ART WEEK will bring Auckland’s thriving arts community together under one umbrella, from 5 – 14 November. Spanning 3 inner-city neighbourhoods, Art Week will encompass 80 exhibitions and events in over 40 galleries and venues during the 10 day period.
The aim of the event is to grow the visual arts audience through discovery and discussion. It will include a cross-section of free art exhibitions, artist talks and special events in commercial galleries, artist-run spaces, public art galleries and museums around the city.
The 10 days of Art Week Auckland will be both fun and enlightening, with exhibitions, talks, and interactive events such as art ‘speed dating’ where the public can go head to head with the know-it-alls of the art world – artists, dealers, collectors, curators to find out what makes the art world wheels turn.
Expect a calendar jam-packed with free events including family and children’s activities, guided walks of galleries. The galleries and art venues involved with Art Week Auckland have something planned for every day of the week, ensuring that Aucklanders have an opportunity to engage with their art community.
The full event programme is live on our website as of today! Check it out www.artweek.co.nz
