New Zealand's contemporary art award, the Walters Prize returns to the Gallery in 2018 for its ninth iteration.

Named in honour of pioneering modernist painter Gordon Walters (1919–1995), the Walters Prize is awarded for an outstanding work of contemporary New Zealand art produced and exhibited during the past two years. The biennial Prize aims to make contemporary art a more widely recognised and debated feature of cultural life.

The 2018 finalists are: Ruth Buchanan for ‘Bad Visual Systems’, 2016, Jacqueline Fraser for ‘The Making of Mississippi Grind 2017’, 2017, Jess Johnson and Simon Ward, ‘Whol Why Wurld’, 2017, and Pati Solomona Tyrell for ‘Fāgogo’, 2016.
