Artist Pack Details

Please select the artist pack below that you wish to apply for. Panels are 2.3 H x 1.2 W, are velcro receptive and are a soft black colour.

Please note that limited storage space will be allocated to artists closer to the event.  Artists are expected to be present to manage their own panels as work always sells better with the artist in charge! Artists may have an assistant for installation and show days. We do not have an option for artist assistants to be present on opening night, unless your assistant signs up and is accepted as a white glover to work for Art Shows Across Aotearoa.

Select an option
We have options available for artist assistants to work as white glovers employed by Art Shows Across Aotearoa. Tick a box below to indicate if you are interested in finding out how your assistant can work at the show. A fee for working as art show support staff will be paid to your assistant post show.
Please check any additional items that you would like to purchase. We reccomend spotlights with your panels.

Artist assistant passes are not viable for the VIP or Opening night event as numbers attending are capped by the venue and we want to keep the availability open for buyers to attend. If you have any qualified buyers coming please indicate how many tickets you would like for them. There is an allocation of tickets available ,and numbers will be finalised once applications close. Please indicate how many tickets you would ideally like.
