Discover the national art collection. Explore the new season of Ngā Toi - Arts Te Papa.

Simon Denny: Secret Power:
Simon Denny’s acclaimed Venice Biennale exhibition Secret Power explores surveillance, espionage, and New Zealand’s role in the Five Eyes international intelligence alliance.

European Splendour 1500–1800:
Exquisite European art and objects reveal how the Church, trade, and innovation influenced what was once considered the height of affluence.

Alexis Hunter: The model’s revenge:
Gender, sexuality, and power - the 1970s photographs of this feminist artist have been described as ‘icons of fearlessness for women’.

Adorned brings together paintings, prints, and cultural treasures to explore the art of adornment in Māori and Pacific cultures.

The Anzac Print Portfolio:
Five New Zealand and five Australian artists respond to the history, legacy, and recent centenary of World War I in Ngā Toi - Arts Te Papa.

New Visions, New Zealand:
Female artists enlivened modern art in New Zealand. Double portraits by Rita Angus, Frances Hodgkins, and A Lois White face off, and a little-known mural by White gets some wall time.

Filmic imaginaries: Jacqueline Fraser and Tracey Moffatt:
Jacqueline Fraser and Tracey Moffatt use popular culture, particularly that of cinematic film, to move their work into the realm of the creative imaginary.

Matt Pine: Placement Projects revisited:
Sculptor Matt Pine combines Māori and Pacific perspectives with American minimalism in a new version of his Placement Projects – site-responsive installations he first created for Auckland Art Gallery in 1978.

Framing the View:
New Zealand’s spectacular scenery captivated European artists and photographers who came here in the 1800s. With no works by Old Masters to copy, nature was their training ground.

Open Home: Contemporary New Zealand artists explore home life:
Works by Derrick Cherrie, L Budd, Graham Fletcher, and others explore what happens when home life goes on display.

Māori minimalism and international influence:
The works of pioneering Māori artist Ralph Hotere, American minimalist artist Ad Reinhardt, and Māori minimalist sculptor Matt Pine are brought together in a surprising conversation.

The Gallery of Helen Hitchings:
Helen Hitchings’ vibrant dealer gallery was groundbreaking in its presentation of modern art and design in New Zealand.
