Māori images

Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki is committed to respecting intellectual property rights, as well as expressions of Māori culture in Aotearoa New Zealand. We ask you to do the same. You’re encouraged to use images as a way of remembering and sharing your experience of our exhibitions, but the reproduction of portraits as commercial items or the use of the images in a way that would cause offence is strictly prohibited.

The Gallery is grateful to all those descendants who have given permission for images of their ancestors to appear on this website. 


Photography and filming in the Gallery

You are welcome to take still and video photographs of people, general scenes within the Gallery, the Gallery building itself and artworks in the permanent collection, with the exception of those artworks that are clearly and specifically labelled. Look out for the ‘no photography’ icon indicating objects or exhibitions that cannot be filmed or photographed. This restriction may be for cultural reasons, due to copyright law or to protect the objects.


Images taken may be used for private study, research or other personal use and must not be sold commercially or displayed publicly in any way that disrespects the subjects in the artworks or causes offence to any individuals or groups. Please be aware that photography, filming and videoing may be prohibited in some exhibitions and of some specific artworks. Where this is the case, this limitation will be clearly communicated through signage on each artwork and at the entry to the exhibition.

Note that the use of tripods, selfie sticks, flash or other means of artificial lighting is prohibited throughout the Gallery.
