For over forty years and through many transformations, this magazine has held on to its central qualifier, News, as its guiding principle. We interpret this today as an urgency. It is defined by our insistence on supporting the expression and interpretation of art and its artists in critically responsive and responsible ways.

—Cameron Ah Loo-Matamua, Editor, Issue 197


Established in 1979, Art News is Aotearoa New Zealand’s longest-serialled contemporary arts publication. Each issue traces the most lively currents and fault lines of arts practice today, nationally and in the wider Moana Oceania region, through feature articles, interviews, columns, artist profiles and reviews, as well as news insights and exhibition calendars. 

Published quarterly, Art News is an essential touchstone for arts professionals and practitioners, engaged collectors and enthusiasts, who return to the magazine for discerning, informed and stylish writing from the country’s leading voices, supported by a committed team.
