About Young Members

Young Members is a periodic e-newsletter and event programme designed for the art-obsessed under 40.

Each event* offers a perfect wind-down after work, activity for a first date, catch-up with friends or a chance to meet someone totally new. You’ll hear from fresh, contemporary voices, artists and curators and of course, enjoy a complimentary drink, including the best non-alcoholic beverages from our mates at Almighty.

All you have to do to stay in the loop is opt-in to the Young Members newsletter when you sign up to be a Member. If you’re already a Member and would like to sign up, let us know at membership@aucklandartgallery.com.

While designed for those under 40, if you're a Member who’s young at heart, feel free to join us.

*All Young Members events are R18.

 

This event is part of our membership programme. Join us for $80 per year (discounts available for students and seniors).

Using the Chartwell Collection as a source, Walls to Live Beside, Rooms to Own is a response to our relationship to life at home – one that has been significantly impacted for many, if not all, of us during the global pandemic. Artists are no different, and this exhibition looks at how they have responded to the materials of home.
