Travel back through history and across place – one artwork at a time
Since opening in 1888, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki has become home to one of the largest public art collections in Aotearoa New Zealand. This collection handbook illustrates more than 220 important and beloved New Zealand and international artworks in the Gallery’s permanent and loan collections, and includes a detailed history of how the collection, numbering some 17,000 works, was built.
The essay, by curator and art historian Julia Waite, shows how turning points in the Gallery’s history reflect New Zealand’s cultural and political shifts over the past 135
years and demonstrates the power art has to speak cross-culturally.
The Collection Te Kohinga beautifully presents Auckland Art Gallery’s rich and diverse art holdings, providing a frame through which we can view and understand the past while looking forward to imagine the future. Connecting Aotearoa with the world, the artworks illustrated in this book convey the breadth and depth of the collection in a journey back through time and across place.
