Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki holds over 18,000 artworks in its comprehensive and internationally significant Collection, presenting art of the people of Aotearoa New Zealand, the art of the Pacific, and the many pivotal artistic achievements from the 12th century to now.

We lend our Collection, and our partner collections entrusted to us, including the Chartwell Collection Trust and the Mackelvie Trust among others, to other galleries and museums both in Aotearoa New Zealand and internationally.

The Gallery's outward loan programme connects us with our sister galleries at home, and related cultural institutions globally. The programme meaningfully contributes to community outreach and demonstrates our commitment to our core values of manaakitanga (we care for others), katiakitanga (we are custodians), and kotahitanga (we unite to create more).

If you work for a gallery or museum and are interested in borrowing from our Collection for an exhibition, please get in touch with our Loans Registrar, Gabriella Stead via email.

For more information, please download the Auckland Art Gallery’s loans procedure guidelines here. These guidelines will help you make your request and provide you with an overview of our assessment and approval process.
