In addition to the exhibition, the fair also signals the launch of a new initiative to make art accessible to the everyman. My Art is based on similar international initiatives in the United Kingdom and Australia that have been hugely successful, with the UK scheme loaning almost $70 million for over 35,000 pieces of artwork since its inception. The New Zealand scheme offers loans that range from $1,000-$25,000.
The fair is on from May 25th - 29th at The Cloud on Auckland’s Queen’s Wharf.
