Milford Galleries Dunedin looks forward to welcoming you at Booth D5 at the Cloud, during the 2016 Auckland Art Fair.
For the 2016 Auckland Art Fair we bring together works from ten established, mid- and early-career artists in a carefully curated mini-exhibition that reveals the gallery’s broad and long-standing engagement with the best of New Zealand contemporary art. The gallery presents a multitude of possibilities, enabling collectors to view the artworks as part of a larger conversation.
Visitors to the stand might explore how the theatricality of Michael Hight’s Nocturne paintings speaks to the performative elements of Yuki Kihara’s digital work. This could in turn lead to a conversation about the role of the nude, as embodied in bronze by Paul Dibble, and presented in Lisa Reihana’s provocative Pelt photographs. Such juxtapositions provide the opportunity to experience how narratives of pattern and form, symbol and story-telling are expressed in media as diverse as steel, glass, glitter, or harakeke.
