It is impossible to suppress art. Raa whaanau – Happy birthday to our National Contemporary Art Award.

What would have been the award’s 21st birthday, is now a celebratory exhibition of some of the winners and finalists from the past 20 years drawn largely from our collection. With the cancellation of the 2020 awards due to the COVID-19 lockdown, we have dedicated space to making a bold statement about art’s triumph rising above the menacing shadow of a pandemic: let’s splurge! Contemporary art – you win!
