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:
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.
