About Artspace Aotearoa
Artspace Aotearoa is a leading non-profit contemporary art organisation located in the heart of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland on Karangahape Road. Founded in 1987 by artists, it centres the ways in which art contributes to our understanding and reimagining of the world in which we live. Artspace Aotearoa runs a rigorous annual programme of exhibitions that are enriched through public programmes, screenings, online publishing, and residencies. It works within a specific city context, and spirals out into national and international conversations that promote practices that present emancipatory world views. With a specific focus on developing an intergenerational kaupapa, Artspace Aotearoa seeks to present established, emergent and under-recognised positions. Artspace Aotearoa acknowledges the provisions of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and as an organisation we support and value Indigenous creative practices within Aotearoa New Zealand and abroad.
