A new Wellington-wide
visual arts festival

Face to Face: Portrait Festival brings together nine dealer galleries and five public galleries in a unique collaboration to showcase work by some of Aoetearoa’s most celebrated portrait artists, alongside early and mid-career artists.

Coinciding with the launch of the New Zealand Portrait Gallery’s inaugural award for emerging Māori artists — the Kiingi Tuheitia Portraiture Award – the Festival programme includes a gallery late night event with performances curated by CubaDupa, a talks series, studio visits workshops and collection tours.
