When The Dust Settles offers an extraordinary opportunity to acquire works by leading artists while supporting the future of contemporary art in Aotearoa New Zealand. Over the last 34 years, Artspace Aotearoa has presented over 400 exhibitions by more than 2000 artists. For When The Dust Settles, 36 works by seminal artists return to the gallery for presentation and sale in an ambitious fundraising auction.

This auction intends to generate the last necessary funds to complete three newly designed spaces in the Artspace Aotearoa basement. The completion of these spaces will realise a greater and better aligned range of opportunities and entry points for artists, curators and other cultural practitioners at Artspace Aotearoa. Read more about about this project here.

Artspace Aotearoa have partnered with Webb’s to deliver When The Dust Settles. From 10am 14 October, bidding for the works below will open on Webb's Online Auction Portal. When The Dust Settles is made possible with the support of our artist community and their representing galleries. Ngā mihi nui.
