Teststrip Archive

Archive Collection Detail

Teststrip was an influential artist-run space (1992 - 1997) based in Auckland. Originally located in Vulcan Lane, the collective moved to Karangahape Rd in 1994. With funding from Creative New Zealand the group upgraded the two-gallery space, formalised their publication series, the Teststrip micrographs, and broadened the kinds of projects they undertook, in particular working with Australian artists and curators and holding a series of shows by Los Angeles artists. The archive consists of three boxes of material: images, exhibition ephemera and catalogues, micrographs, correspondence, minutes, notes and publications.
