Enjoy Public Art Gallery is a noncommercial, artist-run initiative based in Wellington. Liberated from commercial restraints, it provides a platform that supports and allows both emerging and established artists as well as creative practitioners to develop contemporary art in all its forms. Enjoy has the resources that allow critical support and audience development to maintain and generate dialogue, with contemporary practice at both a national and international levels.
Enjoy also offers an annual summer residency, a means by which artists critically engage the Wellington arts community in innovative ways. Its public program allows the gallery to deliver a broad approach to enliven the arts community by continually seeking out new forms of dialogue and engagement on an experimental level.
The gallery also maintains a critically engaging print and online publications program, which produces catalogs and micrographs to accompany exhibitions, as well as the occasional journal. The online publishing component currently consists of a PDF archive, whereby essays and written responses are commissioned as a way to engage emerging writers.
