In line with its grand reopening to the public on Saturday, 13 June, Auckland Art Gallery is launching a new exhibition looking at built environments and our hyper-connected 21st century lives through the eyes of the skilful photographers.

Civilisation, Photography, Now features the work of 100 photographers across eight key aspects of contemporary civilisation. The exhibition illustrates our increasingly global, connected society and encourages viewers to consider where we live, how we consume, and how we travel, learn, explore and control. Art and documentary photography, photojournalism and commercial image-making by artists including Richard Misrach, Candida Höfer, Pieter Hugo, Taryn Simon and An-My Lê focus attention on our habitation of the planet.

The exhibition is co-produced by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, and the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis and Lausanne.
