'Space to Dream' is the first major exhibition in Australasia to introduce, in depth, the art of South America.

The exhibition reveals how South American artists see a social significance for their work and how as rebels and revolutionaries, dreamers and poets, they have challenged, embraced, explained or transformed their realities, lives, cultures and spaces from the 1960s to today.

Visit 'Space to Dream' and experience the work of 41 artists, who include senior figures internationally recognised for their contribution to art as well as younger figures including Lygia Clark, Juan Fernando Herrán, Alfredo Jaar, Marcos Lopez, Ernesto Neto, Hélio Oiticia, Bernardo Oyarzun, Lotty Rosenfeld, Martín Sastre and many more.

Bringing together some of the most visually engaging painting, sculpture, photography, installation, film and performance from across six countries – Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay – 'Space to Dream' includes major works and exciting new commissions.

'Space to Dream' has been developed by Chilean curator Beatriz Bustos Oyanedel and Auckland Art Gallery Principal Curator and Head of Programmes, Zara Stanhope and is accompanied by a significant visitor programme.

Take advantage of a special Early bird general admission price of $12.50. You can also buy tickets on any day of the exhibition, from the Gallery's front desk.
