The annual Wallace Art Awards profile outstanding examples of contemporary New Zealand art. The aim of these important awards, with $275,000 in prizes, is to foster, honour and support the practices of visual artists. Over the years some of New Zealand’s most prominent artists have entered and the residencies awarded to the winners have transformed their careers. Past winners have included Imogen Taylor, Andy Leleisi’uao, Mark Braunias and Judy Millar. Come along and see the works that won the five major prizes (awarding the recipients with various residencies at top international institutions), the runners up and jury prize winners, and the exciting works that make up the travelling show.
This exhibition is during Artweek Auckland 2019
