Gus Fisher Gallery is a centre for contemporary art and The University of Auckland’s flagship art gallery, housed in a 1934 heritage building in central Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
Reopening in April 2019 following upgrades to its heritage interior, Gus Fisher Gallery has established a new direction through bold, socially engaged exhibitions that showcase international and Aotearoa artists.
Gus Fisher Gallery’s extensive programme of events runs alongside its exhibitions, including performances, film screenings, workshops, panel discussions and family activities. Through these events we aim to enable vital conversations to take place among visitors and creative communities in Tāmaki Makaurau and beyond.
In addition to the main gallery, Gus Fisher Gallery has a dedicated project space called The Booth; a unique architectural feature which once housed the building’s original telephone booth, when it was home to the Radio 1YA broadcasting studios. The Booth presents site-specific commissions from emerging through to established artists, engaged through an annual open call.
Visitors are welcome to browse Kete Aronui, the gallery’s permanent reading space, and enjoy a complimentary coffee supplied by Kōkako Organic Coffee Roastery.
Gus Fisher Gallery recognises Te Tiriti o Waitangi as Aotearoa New Zealand’s founding document. We acknowledge Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei who are the mana whenua of central Tāmaki Makaurau and rightful custodians of the land upon which we operate.
