Neighbouring galleries and artists in New Zealand gather for the ‘Auckland Art Fair’ this month – with Australian and international exhibitors to boot. The fair is on view from Wednesday 29 April to Sunday 3 May* and takes place at The Cloud at Queens Wharf with the main space comprised of established galleries. The mezzanine level and Britomart showcase emerging artists and early-career artists without representation.
Australian outfits participating for the first time include Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert, showing Lisa Reihana’s new work, and Brisbane’s Edwina Corlette Gallery whose booth will include artists Sally Anderson, Stefan Dunlop, Yarrenyty Arltere Artists and Eliza Gosse.
Returning galleries include Sarah Cottier Gallery, taking Todd McMillan, while good things come in threes at Fine Arts with Kate Newby, Yona Lee and Michael Stevensen. Fox Jensen McCrory will have an array of work from Coen Young, Gideon Rubin, Matthew Allen, Tomislav Nikolic, Jan Albers, Sofie Mulleer and Liat Yossifor. Jordy Kerwick, Rachael McCully and Zhuang Hong Yi will join Piermarq at the fair. Sarah Scout Presents exhibit work from Fiona Abicare and Christian Thompson, whereas STATION deliver a solo show for Patrick Pound.
Michael Do will curate the Projects component, highlighting unique artistic outcomes that are less likely to be on the fair floor. The ‘Auckland Art Fair’ is a ticketed event, with various passes from VIP to general admission available online.
