When the inaugural Te Tuhi Secret Art Sale opens its doors this autumn, art lovers will have a chance to test their skills. For one weekend in May, original works by artists and art world personalities, as well as architects and designers, will be up for grabs.
What’s the secret? Artworks will be exhibited anonymously and buyers will not know who the artist is until they have completed the sale. Once purchased, the artworks will be turned over, the signature on the back revealed, and the artist’s identity known.
The Te Tuhi Secret Sale includes works by:
Joyce Campbell | Pip Cheshire | Elliot Collins | Graham Fletcher | Sara Hughes | Gregor Kregar | Kerry Ann Lee | Denis O'Connor & more
Proceeds will go directly to the Te Tuhi Commissioning Fund, established in 2015 by a generous donation from Walters Prize-winner Shannon Te Ao. Te Tuhi is well known for supporting artists to create ambitious new work. Previous commissions include the Walters Prize-nominated Mo‘ui tukuhausia by Kalisolaite ‘Uhila, and an influential 2012 installation piece by Luke Willis Thompson, Untitled, now held in the Auckland Art Gallery collection.
Parking is available on Princes Street and Victoria Street Car Park (cnr Victoria Street East and High Street).
Payment for artworks can be made in cash, EFTPOS or credit card only. Please note: payments made by credit card will incur a 5% transaction fee.
