Now don’t feel sad

As the Loaf sang it, “Two out of three ain’t bad,” and so it was with our prediction on CNZ funding for next year's Melbourne Art Fair. The just released CNZ grants lists the Tinakori Gallery and Vavasour Godkin Gallery as both granted $10,000 each “towards participating in the Melbourne Art Fair". Weirdly, three readers have emailed us to say they are surprised to hear that Tinakori has been invited to exhibit. Anyone?

As you know, this funding is part of CNZ’s commitment to “invest in the distinct expressions of New Zealand’s arts and culture at key international events and markets.” The six galleries exhibiting at the last Melbourne Art Fair were: Gow Langsford Gallery, Hamish McKay Gallery, Ivan Anthony Gallery, Jensen Gallery, Michaell Lett Gallery and the Tinakori Gallery
