Artworks shortlisted for New Zealand's contemporary art prize, a survey of work by a light artist, a colourful installation by an international artist and a new sculpture for Matariki have all been confirmed for Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki's autumn and winter program.

Auckland Art Gallery director Kirsten Lacy says the program, which has been two years in the making, will showcase some of the greatest contemporary artists of our era. As the Toi Tū Toi Ora: Contemporary Māori Art exhibition ends in May, artworks in line for The Walters Prize will hit the Gallery floor. Opening Saturday, May 15, the exhibition will showcase outstanding contemporary art from the year preceding the national prize, including works from Fiona Amundsen, Sonya Lacey, Mata Aho Collective and Sriwhana Spong.

This year marks the tenth iteration of New Zealand's national art prize. The exhibition — and the announcement of the winner of this renowned award — means The Walters Prize provides an opportunity for all New Zealanders to discover the pulse of contemporary art in the country today.
