We’re thrilled to have such a strong representation from Australian exhibitors who will join galleries and artists from all over New Zealand for the Fair. Many of these galleries take part in international fairs around the world so their enthusiasm for the Auckland Art Fair is recognition of what the New Zealand art community has to offer.
You’ll be able to read more about our Australian participants and the artists they represent in our daily bulletins and on our web: www.artfair.co.nz but we thought you might like a bit of a heads up to what you’ll see on show at the new Viaduct Events Centre – a work of art itself!
