Visit Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki this summer and experience the Gallery's largest overview of contemporary New Zealand art for 25 years. See the work of emerging artists alongside some of the country’s most established practitioners and discover how these artists are engaging with ideas of utopia, sustainability and artistic freedom.

Freedom Farmers demonstrates the way these creative thinkers act as innovators and leaders in New Zealand – a country whose culture values invention, forward-thinking and liberty. The exhibition includes a wide range of artwork from painting to installation, sculpture, digital art, ceramics, film and photography.

View installations by et al., Dan Arps, Mladen Bizumic and Xin Cheng; photography by Ava Seymour, Edith Amituanai, Wayne Barrar and Allan McDonald; sculpture by Francis Upritchard; and paintings by Stella Corkery. Watch films by Steve Carr and Louise Menzies, and see ceramics by Isobel Thom and Tessa Laird. Enter Freedom Farmers to find these and many more artworks, and join us in a compelling conversation about New Zealand now and about how we shape its future.
