About Contemporary Art Foundation


Contemporary Art Foundation is a Council Controlled Organisation under the Local Government Act 2002, established with the assistance of the former Manukau City Council, now Auckland Council and incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 in September 2000.

The objects of CAF are to promote, encourage and support the arts within Auckland for the benefit and enjoyment of the Auckland Community and the public at large. 

CAF delivers high quality contemporary art to the Auckland region through the Te Tuhi Contemporary Art Trust (Te Tuhi).  Both CAF and Te Tuhi are registered charitable trusts and not-for-profit entities.  The joint delivery mechanism provides a dynamic model of financial viability, and enables Te Tuhi to be fleet footed and responsive to new opportunities as they arise.
