The New Zealand Maritime Museum is the place where the stories of people and the sea are preserved, shared and explored with our visitors.
New Zealand is one of the most maritime nations in the world and the story of every one of us is affected by the sea – through immigration, trade, design, innovation and leisure. The museum is a hub for all of these stories; we express them in our galleries, and through our programme of events, special exhibitions, heritage sailings and more.
The museum houses one of the nation’s most important heritage collections, which covers the breadth of our relationship with the sea; from the Great Pacific Migration a thousand years ago to the cutting edge of modern technology and design used in America’s Cup and modern yachting.
Sumer is commercial art gallery based in Aotearoa New Zealand, working with artists from across Oceania and internationally. Its intergenerational program features work from a breadth of practitioners, from renowned to emerging and outlier artists. The gallery aims to support artistic practices that are critically-engaged and inspired—practices that extend our understanding and appreciation of contemporary art and ideas. We value and champion experimentation, diversity and inclusivity.
Sumer opened its first gallery in Tauranga in 2018, where it operated until 2022. The gallery now operates from Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
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.
Window is a dual-platform contemporary art and project space which showcases experimental works onsite at The University of Auckland’s General Library foyer and online at windowgallery.co.nz.
Hosting shows that are both internally curated and generated by our collaborators, Window aims to support and showcase a diverse range of ambitious and engaging projects between its two platforms and through other outputs and events.
Established in 2004 as ST PAUL St Gallery, Auckland University of Technology’s Te Wai Ngutu Kākā Gallery sits within AUT’s School of Art and Design and is dedicated to the development of contemporary art and design through a curated programme of exhibitions, events, symposia and publications focused both locally and internationally. Through these programmes, the gallery embraces the role of the University as critic and conscience of society and interrogates the proposition that the arts have a particular capacity to speak critically about society.
Te Wai Ngutu Kākā Gallery sits on the Rangipuke ridge, which runs down to the now quarried Te Rerenga Ora Iti (Point Britomart.) Its former name, ST PAUL St Gallery, references its street address, which in turn references the nearby St Paul’s Church, at 28 Symonds St.
