Art for your attention

Art has evolved from wall-flower to party animal and offers the spectator the experience of phenomenon. Anything from solace and grief, expulsion and invitation, to secrecy and full disclosure - art requires us to have our wits about us. The 2014 National Contemporary Art Award remains ever part of this broader conversation of ‘art’, requiring of you only a moment of your consideration.

Sponsored by Ebbett Audi and Tompkins Wake, and managed by Waikato Museum.

This year’s judge is Simon Rees.
