2007 winner: Boris Dornbusch, Resonance, Audio CD, fired clay enamel paint, painted wood and stereo loudspeaker

The Trust Waikato National Contemporary Art Award is an opportunity for New Zealand artists to appear in an overview of national artistic practice and feature in a major exhibition within the Waikato Museum.

Boris Dornbusch is the winner of the 2007 Trust Waikato National Contemporary Art Awards

PRIZE $15,000

Among our national art community this Art Award, established by the Waikato Society of Arts in 2000, is regarded as one of New Zealand’s premiere contemporary art events. It has put Waikato on the map for refusing to shy away from controversy and promoting debate about what is fresh and innovative in art.

Each year, the Award also gives the opportunity to view New Zealand’s contemporary art scene through the eyes of a respected curator.

Dr Leonhard Emmerling, St Paul Street Gallery, AUT, Auckland; is this year’s nationally and internationally acclaimed adjudicator of the Award.

The Waikato Museum is proud to be the organiser of an event that records clear moments of New Zealand’s art history in the making. We are also very appreciative of the contribution of our major sponsor Trust Waikato, and of the continuing support from the Waikato Society of Arts.

Don't miss this opportunity to see these artworks at the Waikato Museum.
