The Art Pack + In Memoriam - Opening Saturday 25 March

The Academy Galleries season of 25 March 'til 23 April runs concurrent shows spanning works from artists who have made their mark in New Zealand. The past and present under one roof.

‘The Art Pack’ is a punchy set bringing together contemporary talent from nine selected artists. Painters, a photographer, a mosaicist and a sculptor. They have all excelled in their fields and come together to put on a show that will make it clear how art influences culture, why we need art and the artist refreshes our senses in the process.

‘In Memoriam’ is a tribute celebrating fine artists that are no longer with us. Their efforts and contribution in shaping our visual environment informs us by the generous loan of some treasured works by family members and art caretakers. This small yet diverse selection expresses how varied we are, how all of us have a unique point of view though we live our lives with common needs.

The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts presents these two exhibitions to showcase diversity and excellence in visual art and to support our communities by way of stimulating and encouraging engagement in culture.

The galleries are open daily from 10 am until 5 pm, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington.

Entry is free.
