Each year the National Contemporary Art Award brings the best in Aotearoa contemporary art to the Waikato. The 2022 finalists on display have been selected via a blind-judging process by one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s top contemporary artists, Reuben Paterson (Ngāti Rangitihi, Ngāi Tūhoe, Tūhourangi). Come and see the winner of the $20,000 top prize and vote for your favourite in the People’s Choice Award!
