Exhibition Details

All art was once contemporary, and Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki’s rich historical and modern collections reflect what was current at certain times. Over the last 10 years, the Gallery has continued building a collection which reflects the interests and concerns of leading artists, while being attentive to who and where we are in the world. Today, Auckland’s contemporary international collection is foremost in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Other People Think: Auckland’s Contemporary International Collection vividly reflects a turn towards the Asia Pacific region, including South America, which respects the changing demographics of New Zealand’s largest and most diverse city. Taking its title from a light work by Chilean artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar, the exhibition considers the importance of shared understandings and empathy in a complex and shifting world.

The exhibition features work in a variety of media including painting, photography, video, kinetic sculpture and installation by artists Nalini Malani, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Taryn Simon, Howard Hodgkins, Mit Jai Inn, María Nepomuceno, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Claire Fontaine and more.

Lately he had been spending much time in quiet dull thought. So many of his art...
