Auckland Art Gallery invites you to take on the role of curator and put together a mini exhibition with five artworks from their collection. How it works: select the works using a search tool, give the exhibition a title, and tell us a bit about your ‘curatorial process’. Do these artworks mean something special to you, or spark an emotion? You can say as much or little as you like!
