The crème de la crème of the na­tion’s con­tem­po­rary art scene is rep­re­sented in an ex­hi­bi­tion of win­ners and a se­lec­tion of fi­nal­ists in the coun­try’s wealth­i­est art awards. Es­tab­lished in 1992 by Auck­land­based arts phi­lan­thropist Sir James Wal­lace, the high-pro­file awards hon­our and sup­port New Zealand vis­ual artists. The show is made up of 50 works in­clud­ing the Wal­lace Arts Trust Para­mount Award win­ner Imo­gen Tay­lor, whose paint­ing Re­fusal To Yield ref­er­ences Bauhaus, cu­bism and mod­ernism and is de­scribed by judges as “bold, mem­o­rable, con­fi­dent and deeply in­formed”. There were 515 en­tries for the 2018 awards. pataka.org.nz
