The Aotearoa Contemporary Art Festival was run in Kaitaia from 14 January to 11 February, 1990, and was part of the nationwide 1990 celebrations.

The 1990 Commission provided the initial grant and the festival was run by a festival committee. Mr Keld Bech was the festival organiser.

As a result of the art festival the sculpture 'Firmament' was purchased jointly by the Northern Community Board and the Far North District Council.
