Artspace NZ is the leading platform for contemporary art in New Zealand (Aotearoa), and it is dedicated to commissioning and presenting new ideas in art and culture. We are artist centered and aim to facilitate and resource artistic inquiry within a creative, critical, and noncommercial environment. In addition to our commitment to artists, we aim to operate as a cultural hub, fueling active engagement at a national and international level for a diverse range of communities.
The central goal of Artspace is to develop and nurture artistic research: our primary means is through the presentation of an innovative exhibition program that allows for discursive, intelligent, and risk-taking practices. The focus of Artspace is to support contemporary artists whose work makes important contributions to shaping, interpreting, and reflecting the ideas of our time.
