Selling the Dream: Classic New Zealand Tourism Posters | Main Gallery

5 December 2015  – 17 January 2016

More than 50 lithographs and silk-screen prints produced by some of New Zealand’s leading commercial artists between the 1920's and 1960's make up the exhibition Selling the Dream: Classic New Zealand Tourism Posters. Sourced from private collections, the posters promote the glamour of travel and New Zealand’s tourism attractions of the era. From the 1850's onwards, New Zealand was portrayed as a ‘scenic wonderland’ which alluded to the perfect relationship between nature and humanity.
