Publisher:Auckland City Art Gallery
Art Toi represents the multiple histories of New Zealand's art and reveals the ignificance and richness of art within our diverse culture. Targeted to a wide audience - from secondary school age readers onwards - the book is thoroughly researched, engagingly written, designed and printed to the highest standard, and at an affordable price point. Organised in four chronological sections which survey the period 1642 to 2011, the 388-page book is an essential handbook to the Auckland Art Gallery's New Zealand collection. It contains introductory essays and over 150 artists' page texts written by the Gallery's curators. These concise, readable texts are accompanied by over 300 stunning new images. Art Toi brings in other viewpoints through eight short, focused essays on a particular moment or theme within New Zealand's art. Written by external experts, the contributors are a mix of established writers with an upcoming generation of curators and art historians. Art Toi is the ideal souvenir for visitors to the newly expanded Auckland Art Gallery and an absorbing journey through New Zealand art for the general reader.
