Changes in the air for Aotearoa Art Fair

Plus: don’t miss out on discount tickets.

Words: Erin Irwin

New Zealand’s Aotearoa Art Fair has announced that this year’s presentation will move to new quarters, with the 2024 iteration to be held at Auckland’s Viaduct Events Centre. Previously held at The Cloud, the change is part of a new chapter for the fair, having been acquired by Art Assembly – the team behind Australia’s Sydney Contemporary.

Aotearoa Art Fair co-owner Tim Etchells says that these changes will foster new relationships across the Tasman, stating that “we see this as a natural evolution focused on building a broader base of art communities and art exchange in the Asia Pacific region and strengthening the relationship between our member fairs. Our deep understanding of the region and each local market and experience organising world-class arts events will provide unique opportunities for the New Zealand visual arts community to grow and prosper”.

Aotearoa Art Fair will run from 18 – 21 April, and host more than 40 galleries this year, with a full list yet to be announced shortly.

Astute collectors will be keeping their eye on the fair, with more exciting changes on the horizon. To get ahead, you can book First Release tickets and save up to 35% on the door price. Get your tickets here before 8 March.
