Published In: New Zealand, 12 October 2017
Published to coincide with the imminent opening of the beautiful new art galleries at Te Papa, this book takes an intimate yet expert look at the national art collection. Ten art curators each pick ten art works and tell us why they love/admire/revere/are moved by them. It's an entirely fresh way to approach art, through the eyes of those who work with these paintings, prints, photographs, applied art objects and sculptures every day and who know them better than most.
