The Art Fair is promoted as the place where the NZ art world meets and the world meets NZ art. I’d never been before but since the Street Eats hall opposite wasn’t open and we had half an hour to kill, we wandered in. The Art Fair runs over 4 days and it was quite an eye opener. So many striking, outrageous, beautiful pieces. The Cloud is an excellent space for an art exhibition although the entrance fee ($25) was a little steep I thought.
Once we had wandered around and decided what we would buy if we won Lotto, we headed across to the one- day- only Street Eats in Shed 10 to eat small plates of authentic dishes from some of Auckland’s top chefs. It’s such an excellent idea (well done Auckland) and I hope that it is repeated again and again and again. The food was exceptional, the vendors seemed happy to be there and there was no entrance fee.
