Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki is a cultural leader in Aotearoa New Zealand. Its purpose is to be a place for art and a catalyst for ideas and offers experiences that strengthen and enrich New Zealand communities.
Audiences are at the heart of all Auckland Art Gallery’s activities, which extend out from the Gallery’s home in the arts and learning precinct of Auckland's central city. The Gallery provides visitors with fresh ways to think about art and participate in creativity. It encourages people to expand cultural horizons through its remarkable collection and by experiencing its temporary exhibitions. Join the conversations generated by the innovative visitor events, outreach activities and education programmes, and become part of the Gallery’s connected community.
With multiple exhibition spaces spreading across three levels of its award-winning building, Auckland Art Gallery is the largest and most inspiring visual arts experience in New Zealand. Its collection and loan collections currently number over 16,000 artworks. Together, they include major holdings of New Zealand historic, modern and contemporary art. Alongside outstanding works by Māori and Pacific artists, they represent significant international painting, sculpture and print collections.
New thinking and research informs Auckland Art Gallery’s programming, which is supported by the resources of the E H McCormick Research Library and the Conservation Research Centre. The Gallery’s publishing programme turns exhibition ideas and other research into books and online publications that keep connecting people with ideas and with each other.
As the fastest growing city in Australasia, Auckland has strong Māori and Pacific populations, as well as an expanding Asian demographic. In this context, Auckland Art Gallery plays a vital role as an inclusive hub for creativity for the city’s diverse communities.
