Artspace is an intersection between contemporary art practices, exhibition making and critical thinking in New Zealand Aotearoa, bridging the universal with the contextual. Artspace is dedicated to commissioning and presenting new ideas in art and culture, as well as fostering critical debate and generating intellectual feedback. Artspace develops and nurtures artistic research at a national and international level through the production of an innovative programme of exhibitions and events, and risk-taking practices.
