Welcome to Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki
Auckland Art Gallery is a cultural leader in Aotearoa New Zealand. Our purpose is to be a place for art and a catalyst for ideas. We offer experiences that strengthen and enrich our communities, and we value collaboration and dialogue.
Audiences are at the heart of all our activities, which extend out from the Gallery’s home in the arts and learning precinct of Auckland's central city. We provide visitors with fresh ways to think about art and participate in creativity. Expand your cultural horizons through our remarkable collection and by experiencing our temporary exhibitions. Join the conversations generated by our innovative visitor events, outreach activities and education programmes, and become part of our connected community.
With multiple exhibition spaces spreading across four levels of our award-winning building, we are the largest and most inspiring visual arts experience in Aotearoa New Zealand. Our collection and loan collections currently number more than 17,000 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 our programming, which is supported by the resources of the E H McCormick Research Library and the Conservation Research Centre. Our 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, we play a vital role as an inclusive hub for creativity for the city’s diverse communities.
