The Auckland Art Gallery is well worth a visit. The old building has been extremely well integrated into the newer extension, creating a beautifully light-filled junction skilfully curated with sculpture. I enjoyed the whole floor of NZ art including the Goldie portraits of Maori. I was hoping to see the Gottried Lindauers, which I saw in Berlin, but evidently they are so popular they are now in San Fransisco. I enjoyed the contemporary and modern art hang - the kinetic sculptures are a real highlight. "Manifesto" with Cate Blanchett playing many different roles on eleven screens is wonderful - enjoyed spending well over an hour moving from screen to screen until closing time at 5pm. Highly recommended.
