We lend artworks from our collection to other galleries and museums, both in New Zealand and overseas. This service connects us to related cultural institutions, and means that our works are seen in diverse places by many different people. If you work for a gallery or museum and are interested in borrowing an artwork from our collection, download the Gallery’s loan policy below.

Temporary closure of outward loans service

During 2021, we will be moving our off-site art storage facility to a new location, and, in preparation, we have implemented a moratorium on all outward loans. This moratorium includes loans from the collections of the Mackelvie and Chartwell Trusts.

We’ll be resuming normal lending services once our new off-site art storage facility is operational, and we will accept new loan requests from November 2021, for loans from July 2022 onwards. For further information on this moratorium, please email Julie Koke, Senior Registrar.
