We’re building a spectacular new art gallery and making changes online.
The Arts Te Papa website will be shutting down soon, but head to Collections Online to find your favourite works from New Zealand’s national art collection.
Contemporary gallery, Level 5, Te PapaPrevious Exhibition
In this exhibition, two generations of artists revel in the possibilities of paint. This is the first time these works by Gretchen Albrecht, Allen Maddox, Andrew Barber, and Fiona Connor have been displayed at Te Papa.
Albrecht and Maddox focus on form and colour, with sweeps of acrylic and frenetic strokes in oil. The younger artists, Barber and Connor, turn the spotlight on the process of painting in unexpected ways.
