This year-long group discussion and gallery visit programme provides an opportunity to learn, and to develop students’ confidence and understanding in relation to contemporary art. 

Fortnightly discussions and lectures exploring topics from current events in the art world alternate with fortnightly visits to galleries in Tāmaki Makaurau and beyond. 

This course, with no formal examinations, is ideal for art enthusiasts interested in the significance, complexities and meaning of contemporary art. Participants are encouraged to contribute to the programme with their own interests and expertise. 

Discussion classes, held fortnightly, will be led by popular Art Today Tutor Mary Robinson, alongside various guest speakers such as Lois Perry, Sarah Hopkinson, Kim Paton and Ngahiraka Mason, bringing you a range of expertise from the contemporary art sector in Tāmaki Makaurau and the Pacific. Gallery visits on alternate weeks will be programmed and led by Lois Perry and Grace Wright. To see the annual schedule, click here.

This course has been designed for people who have considerable experience of contemporary art, and some knowledge of 20th century art movements. We will consider new developments in approaches to exhibiting, making and collecting art both in Aotearoa New Zealand and the wider world.
