He Iti is the home for artist-run spaces at the Art Fair on the Mezzanine of The Cloud. The name He Iti has been kindly gifted to the Fair by Hoea! Gallery.

Hoea! Gallery will be joined in He Iti by The Den (Ōtautahi Christchurch) and mothermother (Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland), along with three new galleries from Naarm Melbourne; Futures, Haydens and Discordia.

‘In what has the potential to be an overwhelming or intimidating environment for ourselves and other small or new galleries, we wanted the space to have a name that made us feel comforted, safe and acknowledged. He iti, refers to the whakatauki Ahakoa he iti, he pounamu which suggests that though something might seem small or insignificant it may in fact be the greatest treasure. It speaks to inclusion and an altering of power dynamics.’ – Hoea! Gallery 2021

Aotearoa Art Fair is where 40+ galleries showcase the work of more than 180 of our region’s most exciting artists, alongside artist talks, commissioned artworks by emerging artists, a new outdoor sculpture space overlooking the Waitematā harbour, an art book shop, and cafes and bars from some of New Zealand’s favourite brands.

New Zealand’s premier showcase for contemporary art takes place from Wednesday 16 November – Sunday 20 November 2022 at The Cloud on Auckland’s Queens Wharf.
