Interesting to see events playing a bigger role in the visual arts. Of course the art fair phenomenon is well known, but a recent invitation from the Ferner Galleries shows that they too get the idea and its opportunities. So, for $185 you can have a 5-course dinner with the director of Te Papa and hear him talk about collecting art. There is also a much more positive feeling in the air about the next Auckland Art Fair, another sign of changing times and shifting hierarchies.
