Visitors to the Fair have access to four pop-up bars and eateries on the ground floor and mezzanine of The Cloud. Take a seat in between the action and enjoy food and drinks prepared by the likes of Daily Bread and Coffee Supreme.
Visit the bookshop upstairs on the Mezzanine level of The Cloud at the Auckland Art Fair to purchase limited copies of the best art books on the market.
Our mission is to support artists and the vibrancy of the New Zealand art scene by making the purchase of art more accessible - so everyone can experience the joy of living with art. My Art pay the gallery directly, so you can take your art home and enjoy it straight away, knowing the artist has been paid in full.
Interest-free loans are available from $1,000 to $50,000, require a 10% deposit and nine equal monthly repayments.
Come and see our team at the Art Fair to find out more. We can process applications and approvals at our stand or you can get pre-approved online today to make it even easier!
Samoa House Library Reading Room
For the Auckland Art Fair 2019, Samoa House Library - in collaboration with Ngatahi - present a reading room, a transitory space that reflects the fundamental importance of research and criticality to contemporary arts in Aotearoa.
All galleries participating at the Art Fair will be invited to contribute texts and resources relevant to their own presentations. Samoa House Library will make these available at the Fair as a Reading Room.
In addition, the public are invited to bring copies of their favourite art books to the Art Fair to donate to Samoa House Library. The library has a unique cataloguing system that acknowledges donor or provenance by cataloguing books under the initials of the donor, making the collection reflective of the community that built it.
Samoa House Library has also commissioned a series of affordable artist editions from prominent local and international artists. These editions focus on the pivotal role of research and literature in artistic practice, and will reflect the individual preoccupations of each artist. These editions will be available for purchase at the Art Fair.
Established in 2018, Samoa House are currently running a Boosted campaign to secure the lease on the library space in Samoa House on K’ Rd for the next year.
