The Wallace Arts Trust stages exhibitions of Recent Acquisitions on a regular basis throughout the year to acknowledge the support of the visual arts in New Zealand through the Trust’s on-going and active acquisition programme.
A key activity of the Trust is the acquisition of works from both emerging artists and established practitioners for the Wallace Arts Trust Collection. The continuous collection of works provides for a ‘diary’ of contemporary New Zealand art practice with the Trust now holding over 8500 works in its Collection. The works in Erased Tattoo have been acquired by the Trust over the last 12 months.
