10 — 18 October
Artweek Auckland is a visual arts festival building on the foundations of expertise provided by galleries, both public and private across Auckland. Arts professionals collectively curate and facilitate events and installations to create a dynamic and exciting "week" showcasing our amazing visual arts community.
With activations taking place in eight different precincts, including Auckland’s Heart of the City, Newmarket, Ponsonby, Arch Hill / Uptown, Parnell, Karangahape Road and Devonport, there are also satellite events in the South, West and North Shore.
Walking Tours allow for participants to visit galleries, pop up spaces, public artworks, corporate collections and much more – or if you wish to partake on a 10km round trip Tours by Bike, granting an opportunity to take in Auckland’s many sights and visiting galleries along the way.
Artweek also offers a level of interactivity and tutorial throughout 2015 presenting masterclasses and workshops on collecting art and expressing your opinions through creative writing.
All events are free and everyone is welcome.
Artweek Auckland is presented by the NZ Contemporary Arts Trust, a registered charitable trust.
Everyone's a critic but there are few organised opportunities for budding and established writers to contribute to a critical conversation about our art.
Now is your chance to review an exhibition you find interesting (whether it takes your fancy or not) or comment with a short article more generally on exhibitions and the visual arts in New Zealand.
