Tribute: Visual artists celebrated by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand

Tribute: Visual artists celebrated by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand

Exhibition Details

Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki is thrilled to be working with the Arts Foundation of New Zealand on Tribute, an exhibition that draws together 16 visual arts Icons and Laureates for the first time in one show.

Throughout history artists have been supported by people who cherish creativity. Some of the best art has resulted from the contribution of patrons - Michelangelo would not have painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling without a committed supporter. The Arts Foundation of New Zealand, founded by a group of dedicated arts patrons, aims to reward excellence in all art forms - dance, film, literature, music, performance and the visual arts.

The Arts Foundation bestows two types of awards:

Icons are artists recognised for a lifetime achievement. These local pioneers have contributed to New Zealand's cultural identity and their unique voices echo around the world.

Laureates are prime movers in New Zealand art, flag-bearers rising to international prominence. Their existing work is resonant and their future work eagerly awaited.

These award winners are a group of New Zealand's most recognised visual artists and Tributeprovides a cross section of our best examples of contemporary art.

Icons: Len Castle (potter), Pakariki Harrison (carver), Ralph Hotere (visual artist), Milan Mrkusich (visual artist), Diggeress Te Kanawa (weaver).

Laureates: Phil Dadson (intermedia artist), Neil Dawson (sculptor), Warwick Freeman (jeweller), Humphrey Ikin (furniture maker), Derek Lardelli (Ta Moko artist), Julia Morison (visual artist), Michael Parekowhai (visual artist), Peter Peryer (photographer), John Pule (writer, visual artist), Ann Robinson (glass sculptor), Ronnie van Hout (visual artist).
