THE BIGGEST ART EVENING OF 2021

Opening Night at Auckland Art Fair is your ticket to mingle with galleries, collectors, artists, friends, colleagues and other art enthusiasts, and, most importantly, get a first look at the art on display.

It’s the only night where you can visit galleries from across Aotearoa, Australia, and the Pacific Rim, without leaving The Cloud.

Enjoy Perrier-Jouët champagne, cocktails by our official spirit partner Scapegrace, wine by Seresin Estate, beer from Hallertau Brewery, pop-up oyster bars from The Oyster Inn and more.

Discover 40+ Galleries and new work by Leading Artists

With 40 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 – Auckland Art Fair, Aotearoa’s premier contemporary art event, has something for everyone.

RETURN TO THE FAIR ON GENERAL ENTRY ACCESS HOURS

Each day at Auckland Art Fair is unique, and with an Opening Night ticket you can return during General Entry opening hours Thursday to Sunday.*

Hear your favourite artist speak on gallery stands, discover new work, meet artists and chat to gallerists or simply relax in the new Sculpture Space looking out to Auckland’s Waitematā Harbour with a cocktail in hand from Scapegrace.
