My ART is thrilled to partner with the Arts Foundation to endow a new Laureate Award. Every year we will recognise an exceptional visual artist from Aotearoa New Zealand with outstanding potential for future growth. The inaugural My ART Visual Arts Laureate Award is $25,000 and will be awarded in September 2020.
My ART works with McCahon House to support sales of their artist-in-residence edition programme, and has recently partnered with May Fair, a new alternative art fair which presents emerging and unrepresented artists from Aotearoa New Zealand and the Pacific.
My ART is a strategic supporter of Objectspace. We underwrote their impressive new building project, and continue to support the exhibition programme.
My ART sponsored two initiatives at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki. The New Collector Series is a schedule of talks and walking tours around Auckland’s dealer galleries, with the goal of providing access and education to collectors. Meanwhile for your younger audience members, My ART Time is a free, kids-focused weekend event designed for families to participate in making art together.
My ART underwrote the purchase of a significant artwork (Cerith Wyn Evans, Things are Conspicuous in Their Absence, 2012) by Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū Foundation to mark the retirement of CAG’s long-standing director, Jenny Harper.
