The first iteration of TENT will kick off in November this year, with more than 25 pop-up exhibitions open around the country from Friday the 5th to Sunday the 7th of November. An online preview will open on the TENT website on Thursday the 4th of November.
TENT was founded by the team behind Aotearoa Art Fair. Participating galleries will present pop-up exhibitions anywhere that is not their own gallery space, from spaces outdoors to different indoor venues across the country.
The list of participating galleries for the first iteration of TENT has been released and includes:
Black Door Gallery
Fox Jensen/Fox Jensen McCrory
Gow Langsford Gallery
Robert Heald Gallery
Scott Lawrie Gallery
Tim Melville Gallery
Laree Payne Gallery

SCAPE Public Art
For those who can’t make it to the in person pop-up exhibitions, TENT will present a full virtual viewing room experience online on the TENT website. Both in person and online events are free for all to attend.
