Elam Artist Ye-Bin Lee: 'A friendly Intrusion', 2017
Elam Artist Ye-Bin Lee: 'A friendly Intrusion', 2017

The Elam Artists Graduate Show provides the opportunity for our exceptional emerging artists to share their most distinguished ideas and insights into contemporary art. In addition to a celebration of the completion of their studies, the exhibition serves as an introduction of their work to the wider arts community, attracting prospective students, artists, curators and collectors.

This annual event is a four-day art exhibition comprising the work of almost 100 Studio IV, BFA(Hons), PGDipFA and MFA graduating students from Elam School of Fine Arts. Featuring a breadth of artworks rich in variety, the exhibition will include painting, sculpture, photography, installation, sound work, design and multimedia projects.

With the 2016 launch of the school’s digital platform, Elam Artists, support for graduating students is set to continue upon completion of their studies and beyond, archiving their creative achievements in a permanent and searchable online space. This year's graduating work will appear on the site from 22 November 2018.

Each year, a number of Elam graduates go on to forge significant careers in a range of creative fields both in New Zealand and overseas, so we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to catch a glimpse of the future of contemporary arts practice, and the next generation of New Zealand artists.

This year's venues:

  • George Fraser Gallery, 25a Princes Street, Auckland Central
  • Elam B, 5 Symonds Street, Auckland Central
  • Elam School of Fine Arts (main building) 20 Whitaker Place, Auckland Central
